Leung Chi Wo is a visual artist. His reflective practice combines historical exploration with conceptual inquiry within a contemporary urban landscape. Ranging from photography and video to text, performance and installation, he is concerned with the undetermined relationship between conception, perception and understanding, especially in relation to site and history within cultural/political frameworks. His practice always involves research into different contexts and situations, and the artistic outcomes linked to the hidden relationships of various subjects. His site-specific project was featured in the first Hong Kong pavilion at the Venice Biennale in 2001. His works have been exhibited in major international museums and institutions including Tate Modern in London, NRW Forum in Dusseldorf, Museu da Imagem e do Som in São Paulo and biennales in Shanghai, Busan and Manchester, among others. He had his first survey exhibition at OCT Contemporary Art Terminal in Shenzhen in 2015.
Leung was a co-founder of Para/Site Art Space. He has been engaged in collaborative projects, including seminal works with Sara Wong such as City Cookie and Museum of the Lost; and curatorial project for the Guangzhou Triennial 2008. Leung was visiting artist at the Institut Kunst of Hochschule Luzern and Ecole Cantonale d’Art du Valais in Switzerland; Monash University, Melbourne and Australian National University; as well as other academies and universities. He has also participated in artist-in-residence programmes in New York, Banff, Vienna and Sapporo. He now teaches in the School of Creative Media, City University of Hong Kong.
