C&G Artpartment is a Hong Kong based, multidisciplinary art space, involving an art exhibition space, a visual art education unit, a small art book store etc... With a strong concern over the local art ecology, C&G helps develop new flavors in the local art scene, use art to respond to social and cultural issues, and provide art education programs for the public. Its essential goal is to fill up the crack in the current art scene, and become an art space for idea exchanges.

The third round of “Decongestant” is titled “We Wet.” According to the Hong Kong Observatory’s reports, Hong Kong has much more rainfall and higher humidity this year. Serious depression symptoms would appear during such wet and dark weather, which in turn would affect one’s daily life, social life and working life. Using the terminology of Chinese herbal medicine, we have entered the status of “Hysteresis.” The current project of “We Wet” invites nine artists to try to dry their wet works in the public space together. Drying what “We Wet” with nine artists together may have many different layers of meanings:
Artists+ Documentary Partners: AU Suzanne+Kane Four、CHENG Yee Man(Gum)+Clara、 CHEUNG Clara+CHENG Max、CHEUNG Yung+Jerry CHAN、CHIM Chi Ho+WONG Wai、 FUNG Loiix+Macro CHAN、LEUNG Chin Fung(Jeff)+ahtong、 TO Yeuk+ Grace TO、YU Wing Kei(Rik)+TANG Wing Sze+Benny YEUNG
