Mak Ying Tung 2

Mak Ying Tung 2 (b.1989) is a Hong Kong-based conceptual artist.

Mak 2’s work is not defined by any medium and is often referred to as “fun and crazy.” The aesthetic experience Mak 2 crafts is bound by the dualism of humour and intense, often dark inquisitiveness. Her recent works contemplate contemporary issues through the study of Humanities. Her current projects include “#prettyartist #uglymaleart”, an Instagram series that documents selfies of herself with artworks by famous male artists she deems ugly, to address aspects of the artist’s experience as a female artist.

Her artwork has been exhibited internationally in: How Do We Begin? - X Museum Triennial 1st Edition, X Museum, Beijing (2020); Home Sweet Home, de Sarthe, Hong Kong (2019); We Didn't Mean To Break It (But It's Ok, We Can Fix It), Pedro Cera, Lisbon, Portugal (2019); Whatever Works, Whatever It Takes, Goethe-Institut China, Beijing (2019); The Anything Machine, de Sarthe, Beijing, China (2018); 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); COMEINSIDE: EAT ME, PingPong 129, Hong Kong (2017); COMEINSIDE: BABY SHOWER, Gallery Exit, 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); Almost Empty, Gallery Exit, Hong Kong (2014); and SOFT OFF: But I love it when your mouth is a little shut, ltd Los Angeles, Los Angeles, USA (2013).
