Wong Kit Yi lives and works between New York and Hong Kong. Exploring biological answers to metaphysical questions, she deals with odd scientific findings and the dysfunctional relationship between what is considered science and pseudoscience. Wong also investigates the contractual relationship, working with such ideas as patron collaboration through the 99-year leases for her artworks. Her interests are always subject to change.

Her most recent works have been included in projects organized by Public Art Fund (New York, 2020); TANK Museum (Shanghai, 2020); Para Site (Hong Kong, 2019); Surplus Space (Wuhan, 2018); the Latvian Centre for Contemporary Art (Riga, 2017). Reviews of her work have appeared in such publications as the New York Times, Art in America, Contemporary Art Daily, e-flux conversations, ArtReview, ARTnews, ArtAsiaPacific, and Art Newspaper etc. She has been selected for the Chinati Foundation Artist in Residence program (Marfa, 2021), where she will walk to and from between Mexico and the US to explore meteorological borders. She received an MFA from Yale University, and has been teaching university courses about performance, video art and new media. When she is not teaching, she loves lecturing people in her signature karaoke-inspired lecture format. She is the co-chair of LASER (Leonardo Art Science Evening Rendezvous) Hong Kong, and a die-hard member of KFC (kombucha fan club).
