Leaves of white champaca, Hong Kong coins, traditional Chinese characters - these are but some of Leung Lok Hei Giraffe’s visual dialogues and emotional projections towards the intimate yet ever-changing elements that weave one’s imaginaries towards the constitution of Hong Kong identity. With an exceptional experimentation on mixed media and conceptual expression, Leung renders his artistic language a sensitive and thought-provoking channel in the re-imagination of our daily, local encounter. Anchoring on a myriad of mediums and materials, together with his personal sensitivity towards the dynamics between the seen and the unseen, Leung’s works seek to engage the audience with an experience that redirect their attention to happenings one shall never be accustomed to.
The artist continues his artistic experimentation with found objects and instantly reacts to the daily nonsense with his works. While rendering his works as a form of documentation, the artist also proactively engages the audience with an experience that probes a powerful reflection on the power dynamics between our daily encounter and biopolitics.
Leung Lok Hei, Giraffe (b.1993, Hong Kong) obtained a Bachelor's degree of Arts with First Class Honours in Interior Architecture, Middlesex University in 2016 and Master of Arts in Fine Arts (M.A.), the Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2021.
