Second Nature: A contemporary art exhibition of your own
Kingsley Ng is an interdisciplinary artist and designer with a focus on conceptual and site-specific projects. He believes that art helps us to mediate our environment, whether as a viewer or participator. Past projects include Twenty-Five Minutes Older, a commission by Art Basel in 2017 which took the audience on a moving tram, and after the deluge, presented in 2018 in Hong Kong in an underground stormwater tank the size of 40 Olympic-sized swimming pools.
His works have been featured in notable exhibitions and international venues such as the MACRO, Rome Italy; Contemporary Art Centre of South Australia, Parkside, Australia; Guangzhou Triennial, China; Land Art Mongolia Biennial, Mongolia; Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennale, Japan; IRCAM at Centre Pompidou, Paris, France; Pavilion Lille Europe, Shanghai Expo, China; InterAccess Electronic Media Arts Centre, Toronto, Canada; and the Hong Kong Museum of Art, and Art Basel Hong Kong.
Ng has received postgraduate training at Le Fresnoy – National Studio of Contemporary Arts in France, graduating with the highest honours (Les felicitation du jury à l'unanimité). He continued his studies with an MSc Advanced Sustainable Design from the University of Edinburgh and a BFA New Media from Ryerson University.
