Mak Ying Tung 2

Mak Ying Tung 2 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 work focuses on installation, performance and illustration. She contemplates the properties of everyday objects and materials. Interested in finding something rare in the minutiae of life, she reconstructs objects and situations to create an aesthetic experience that is bound by the dualism of humor and intense inquisitiveness. For instance, through incorporating QR codes within a playground-like setting, her artwork You Better Watch Out (2017) illustrates the wide spread surveillance implicatons of an open internet. She does not prompt audiences to merely laugh, but also to explore spaces and direct the viewer's attention to the forces that lie underneath the surface of their surroundings.

Her artwork has been exhibited internationally in exhibitions. Her solo shows are: The Anything Machine, de Sarthe, Beijing, China (2018); 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: Invisible Cities, Crow Collection of Asian Art, Dallas, USA (2017-18); com/.cn - Co-presented by KAF and MoMA PS1, K11 Art Foundation, Shanghai, China (2017-18); Reversal Ritual, de Sarthe, Hong Kong (2017); 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).
