Law Yuk-mui graduated from The Chinese University of Hong Kong with a Master of Fine Arts (MFA). She is the co-founder of the artist-run organisation Rooftop Institute.
Using image, sound and installation as her mediums of preference, and adopting the methodology of field study and collecting, she often intervenes in the mundane space and daily life of the city and catches the physical traces of history, psychological pathways of human, the marks of time and the political power in relation to geographic space. Law often digs beyond the surface, through which she would recover fragments of narratives and micro histories. She is also sensitive to remnants in the art making process and finds imaginative ways to re-use and reactivate these things.
Her works have been extensively exhibited in Asia, including: Michikusa, Art Tower Mito, Japan (2020); Jogja Biennale (2019) ; From Whence the Waves Came at Para Site (2018); Art Basel Hong Kong (2018); Future Life Handbook at the Redtory Museum of Contemporary Art, Guangzhou, China (2017-2018); Victoria East: FUSE Artist Residency at Videotage, Hong Kong (2017); Talkover/Handover 2.0, at 1a space, Hong Kong (2017); and the Busan International Short Film Festival, South Korea (2017).
Law Yuk-mui received The Awards for young artist (media art category) of Hong Kong Arts development Awards and the Excellence Award (Media Art Category) of The 23rd ifva Awards in 2018.
