WONG Sze Wai
 

Sze-Wai Wong is an artist who born and based in Hong Kong. She graduated from the Chinese University of Hong Kong, Master of  Fine Arts. Her artworks focus on the relationship between memory and imagination. They highlight the loss of memories and represent the process of recollection in a way of inscription and erasure, which is also known as palimpsest.As for the subject matter, she is fascinated by ruin for its metaphorical representation of lost and concealed memories. Ruin has been regarded as a body of memory and history as traces of human activities and changing times fill such abandoned places. From her experience of visiting ruins, wondering about ruins is much alike recalling memories because we imagine the history of ruins, just like we imagine our own memories.

 

A tour of ruins awaits— to remember and to imagine.
