Hong Kong artist Chino Lam and DTA 2017 winner takes part in Art Vinyl Exhibition. Chino Lam expresses his self through this sculpture. In designing [ Extinction ] Chino homes in on his basketball days in Hong Kong. Every angel has a meaning and brings back memories from the streets of Hong Kong’s hoodlum.Each area of [ Extinction ] symbolising Chino’s basketball and roots of himself rolled into one sculpture. So much so even bring back the triad stories from the concrete grounds of Hong Kongs Basketball courts.
My basketball era
There were all kinds of people battling on the court
The rich wore sneakers
The poor wore slippers
But we all played the same basketball
The foundation is the concrete floor of our housing estate’s court in the past
All these basketball memories, to me, are extinct and precious… just like an ivory ball – Chino Lam
