Chan Ka Kiu (b.1995 Canada, Toronto) is a Hong Kong based artist. Chan graduated in 2017 from the CUHK Fine Arts Department. Chan’s previous exhibitions includes solo exhibition Don’t come so fast, darling (Art Basel Hong Kong 2019, Para Site booth), A Tree Fell in the Forest, and No One’s There (Shanghai Power Station of Art, 2018). Chan romanticizes daily scenarios in playful but honest juxtapositions and softly crushes the boundaries between lightness and heaviness of private and public emotions. Art is her means to exercise sensitivity.

She holds a Bachelor of Arts with a concentration in Art History from the University of British Columbia Okanagan. Jong co-runs Ground Floor Art Centre, is part of public art initiatives Border Free Bees and chART Public Art, and sits on the board of Arts Assembly. She works at Or Gallery and has been a part of various arts organizations throughout BC. Jong’s practice centers on researching and developing projects related to Chinese diasporic identity, Asian settlerhood, anti-racism and public art.

Amy Weng is an art writer and independent curator from Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland. She is the founder of Hainamana.com, a website dedicated to Asian New Zealand contemporary art and culture, and has contributed to publications including The Spinoff, Circuit, The Pantograph Punch, Peril and HAMSTER.
