"Hong Kong's ever-soaring rents and downtown space limitations have forced numerous gallerists with small spaces in Central to find exhibition rooms further afield. Seeing potential in the burgeoning artistic hub of Chai Wan early on, 10 Chancery Lane set up 10 Chancery Lane Gallery Art Projects in the heart of the cluster of high-rise industrial buildings that line the waterfront in the eastern district. The past two years have seen an influx of design and photography studios as well as a spattering of brave residents, seduced by high ceilings and loft-style living. Chancery Lane's large-scale installation by Vietnamese artist Dinh Q Lê pulled off the considerable feat of luring hundreds of Hong Kong's fickle art-viewing public away from their protective bubble of Central.
