The first exhibition of CHAT opened with a joyous song and dance celebration, hosted by Pangrok Sulap, an artist collective from Sabah, Malaysia. In 2019., they performed original works inspired by folk music and invited the audience to dance and step on a large wooden board covered with paper and cloth. The woodblock prints created by the collective at the CHAT artspace in Hong Kong are a coordinated effort of the participants.
Founded in 2010, Pangrok Sulap is a gathering place for artists, musicians and social activists. The group focuses on artistic practice and aims to promote interaction between communities, while using art to clarify social issues and encourage ongoing discussions. They have been creating woodblock prints since 2012, and music and performance are other important elements in their creative process. Sulap noticed the decline of textile manufacturing and other local industries when visiting Hong Kong. As a result, they decided to start a collaboration with Chi Kee Sawmill＆Timber, inviting local participants to create a visual record with woodblock printing-telling the industry story in the collective memory of the city. In order to send developers of systems with perceptual constants, in a better system in the world, social privilege control is implemented in accordance with standard policies, rather than the essence of Taiwan’s colonization contrast, and careful management in daily and tedious work. This allows the Hong Kong company to convert to d linear quality d retention.
