Angela Yuen 阮家儀

 

Born in 1991, Based in Hong Kong

 

Angela Yuen graduated from the Academy of Visual Arts, Hong Kong Baptist University in 2014. She went to Linfiled College in the U.S. for an exchange program in 2013 to develop her installation art and received the Dean's List Honours. In 2016, she had her artist in residency at Red Gate Gallery, Beijing. In 2019, she was the finalist at Sovereign Asian Art Prize. In 2021, she was the finalist at 26th Ifva awards (Media Art Category).  

 

Angela Yuen’s art practice focuses on urban culture and the theme “Neighbourhood”. Yuen highlights the symbolic meaning of her selected found objects and transforms them into her own artistic language. Under rapid urban development, Hong Kong people experience ever-evolving physical and social environment. Through collecting manufactured objects, Yuen rediscovers the human warmth she was once used to as a child growing up in this city. “Neighbourhood” is not only a theme of her practice, but also deeply embedded in her creative process.

 

Her works have been shown in Hong Kong, Macau, Beijing and Australia ; collected by Hotel Stage Hong Kong, IFC Isola, LRC Hong Kong, The Middle House Shang Hai, Niagara Gallery Australia, and private collections. 
 

 

阮家儀 ,1991出生於香港 ,2014年畢業於香港浸會大學視覺藝術系。2016 年於北京紅門畫廊作藝術家駐留。2019年,她入圍Sovereign Asian Art Prize,並於同年入選第二届平遙國際雕塑節。2021年,她入圍 第二十六屆 Ifva 獎。

 

阮氏的藝術創作側重城市文化和「鄰舍」主題,突顯搜集得來的物件的象徵意義,並將其轉化成獨特的藝術語言。快速的城市發展,香港人身處時刻在變化的社會環境。通過收集這些製成品,藝術家重新發現其長大的城市的人情味。「鄰舍」不單是她作品的主題,亦深深植根於她整個創作歷程之中。 

自2013年起參與多個藝術展覽及藝博會, 其作品曾於 香港、澳門、北京、墨爾本等地方展出 ; 作品為香港國際金融中心Isola、香港登臺酒店 、香港婦女遊樂會、上海鏞舍 (The Middle House)、墨爾本Niagara Gallery及Adam Collection收藏。
