Ocean Leung

Collaborated Project:

In Artist's Residence

Leung’s artistic practice involves observation and intervention through flaneuring, sometimes working with found images and ready-made objects, so as to explore the interplay between art and its plights. The result appears in the form of object, installation and video, exhibited to accumulate a visual disruption.

Recent solo exhibitions include Roll up the vibrant breeze (Gallery Exit, 2016), A Response to an intervention (Things that can happen, 2016) and tasteless noises (Cheng Ming Building, New Asia College, 2015); group exhibitions include Borrowed Scenery (Cattle Depot, 2019), Café do Brasil (Para Site, 2019), From Ocean to Horizon (Centre for Chinese Contemporary art, Manchester, 2017), SOIL AND STONES, SOULS AND SONGS (Museum of Contemporary Art and Design, Manila, 2016) and No Cause for Alarm (La MaMa Galleria, New York, 2016).

Leung co-curated the exhibition No Neverland (Hong Kong Visual Arts Centre, 2017), Any Other Business (The Office, 2017), community based art project Yau Ma Tei Self-Rescue Project (Wooferten, 2012) and P-at-Riot: June-Fourth Festival for Post-80s generation (2009). He is also the producer of two independent documentary films Open Road After Harvest (Hong Kong, 2015) and The Way of Paddy (Hong Kong, 2013).

Born in 1983, Leung lives in Hong Kong. He graduated from the Department of Fine Arts (BA), The Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2006, and obtained a Master of Fine Arts degree (MFA) in 2016 from Graduate School of the same university. Leung is now a high school visual art teacher.
