Oscar Chan Yik Long was born in Hong Kong in 1988. He now lives and works in Hong Kong. Chan graduated from the Academy of Visual Arts at Hong Kong Baptist University in 2011. His works span a range of media, including installation, ceramics and illustration, and are often inseparable from the sites in which they are exhibited. His practice focuses on his personal experiences, through which he further explores the conditions of life, and examines the ways individuals associate themselves with others and society.
Chan’s recent solo exhibitions include Soliquid at Things that can happen, Hong Kong (2017), and The Devil, Probably at Observation Society, Guangzhou (2015). He has also participated in group exhibitions such as Mountain Sites: Views of Laoshan at Sifang Art Museum, Nanjing (2016); Stars and Monsters at Neptune, Hong Kong (2016); A Journal of the Plague Year at Kadist Art Foundation and The Lab, both in San Francisco (2015), and Para Site, Hong Kong (2013); as well as we all sleep alone at Platform China, Hong Kong (2013).
