Biography

Born in 1987 in Hong Kong
Now lives and works in Hong Kong

With a bachelor's degree from the fine arts department of the Chinese University of Hong Kong, Kong Chun Hei has cultivated an artistic practice galvanized by his keen, unperturbed sense of observation. His work examines everyday objects and their inherent forms, while exposing varying nuances in the relationship between the object and the context where it is found. This has underpinned his practice that stretches intuitively across drawing, installation, and video to accentuate the tension that hovers between reinforcement and offset.

Notable solo exhibitions include "PS" (Para Site, Hong Kong, 2023), "Absent minded" (TKG+, Taipei, 2022), "Off Beat" (Feyerabend, Hong Kong, 2022), "Raise the Dimness" (TKG+ Projects, Taipei, 2020), "Turn down the pulse" (Crane Gallery, Kaohsiung, 2018), "Stay away from those rocks" (Gallery Exit, Hong Kong, 2017). Group exhibitions include "Marginal Notes" (Hong Kong Arts Development Council SHOWCASE, 2023), "Measured in feet" (Honggah Museum, Taipei, 2023), "Double Vision" (JC Contemporary, Hong Kong, 2022), "Today Could Have Been A Happy Day" (Taikang Space, Beijing, 2018), "From Ocean to Horizon"(Centre for Chinese Contemporary Art, Manchester, 2017) and "The Second CAFAM Future" (CAFA Art Museum, Beijing, 2015).
