Bio

 

Mak Ying Tung was born in Hong Kong in 1989. She graduated from City University of Hong Kong with a Bachelor’s degree in Creative Media in 2013.

 

Mak’s works mainly focus on installation, performance and illustration. She considers about the important properties of everyday objects and materials. Interested in finding something rare in the minutiae of life, she reconstructs the objects and situations to create an aesthetic experience that is bound by the dualism of humor and inquisitiveness. For instance, through incorporating QR codes within a playground-like setting, her works show the impact of the Internet in the 80-90s generation.  Her purpose does not prompt to make the audience to merely laugh but also to explore spaces and possibilities of addressing the contemporary concerns, as well as to attract the viewer’s attention of what lies underneath the surface of their surroundings.

 

Her artwork has been exhibited internationally in exhibitions. Her solo shows are: COMEINSIDE: EAT ME, PingPong 129, Hong Kong (2017); COMEINSIDE: BABY SHOWER, Gallery Exit, Hong Kong (2017); and Almost Empty, Gallery Exit, Hong Kong (2014). Her recent group exhibitions are: ".com/.cn co-curated by KAF & MOMAPS1, K11 Shanghai, Artists’ Film International, Whitechapel Gallery, London, United Kingdom (2016); The Second “CAFAM-Future” Exhibition, CAFA Art Museum, Beijing, China (2015); Artistic or Autistic – The Seventh Annual Exhibition, Inside Out Art Museum, Beijing, China (2014) and SOFT OFF: But I love it when your mouth is a little shut, ltd Los Angeles, Los Angeles, USA (2013).
