Jess Ching-Wa Lau (b.1991, Hong Kong) obtained her BA (Honours) in Creative Media at the City University of Hong Kong in 2014. In the same year, she received the Silver Award and the Best Local Work at the 20th ifva Festival (Interactive Media Category). Jess’s work applies themes such as narrative fragments and body memory and focuses on iterative manual processes and the aggregation of time. Jess’s work involves a wide range of media—video, animation, installation— and explores the uniqueness and the malleability of each different medium, for example, outlining the fiction and reality with stop-motion animation. Jess is the selected artist of Tai Kwun Contemporary Artists’ Studio Residency 2020. She is a member of the ‘Floating Projects Collective’, an experimental artist-run space in Hong Kong.
