Oscar Chan Yik Long (b. 1988, Hong Kong) graduated from the Academy of Visual Arts of Hong Kong Baptist University in 2011. His practice focuses on personal experiences through different media including installation, drawing, painting, and moving images, most of which are site-specific. The works explore conditions of life, and how individuals associate themselves with others.The micro-proposition of his work in recent years is fear, and his artistic approach is distinguished by its confessional quality. Past exhibitions include solo exhibition Soliquid (Things That Can Happen, Hong Kong, 2017), The Devil, Probably (Observation Society, Guangzhou, 2015), and group exhibitions Futur, ancien, Fugitif (Palais De Tokyo, Paris, 2019), Contagious Cities: Far Away, Too Close (Tai Kwun Contemporary, Hong Kong, 2019), Divided We Stand (Busan Biennale, Busan, 2018), A Tree Fell in the Forest and No One’s There (Power Station of Art, Shanghai, 2018), Crush (Para Site, Hong Kong, 2018),  Mountain Sites: View of Laoshan (Sifang Art Museum, Nanjing, 2016) and A Journal of the Plague Year (Kadist Art Foundation and The Lab, San Francisco, 2015). The artist currently lives and works in Paris and Hong Kong.
