BIOGRAPHY (ENG)
(within 2000 Characters)
I start with painting and continue my interest in exploring image as text and as a medium for thinking and experiencing, and in extension, the formation and operation of imagery in the mind. Working with painting, digital imaging, video, sound and installation, I transform available materials, re-present them in new contexts, and invite audience to imagine alternative possibilities behind them. As an extension to my art practice, I also collaborate with others and curate research exhibitions, creative projects and learning / audience engagement programmes.
BIOGRAPHY (CHI)
(within 1000 Characters)
我的創作主要探索影像如何作為我們思考和經驗的媒介,透過混合繪畫、數碼影像、錄像聲音和裝置等,邀請觀眾重新體驗發掘既有的影像,以向它們背後的現實結構作出提問。我也喜歡跟不同範籌的單位合作策劃研究為本的展覽、有趣的創意項目和教學及參與式活動,延伸實踐我的藝術創作。
