LAU Ching-wa Jess 


生於1991年香港﹐2014年獲得香港城市大學創意媒體文學士(榮譽)學位。她以片段式的影像探索敍事的可能及以身體的記憶為創作題材,著眼於不同媒介本身的獨特性及其質感之可塑性。作品涉及錄像、動畫、裝置等元素。 其作品曾獲「香港第二十屆ifva獨立短片及影像媒體節」新媒體藝術組別銀獎及本地最佳作品,2020年進駐大館藝術家工作室。她現時為香港句點。藝術群體成員之一。


Born in the City of Hong Kong in 1991, Jess Ching-Wa Lau gained 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) in 2014. Jess’ work applies themes such as narrative fragments, body memory and focus on iterative manual processes and the aggregation of time. Jess’ work involves a wide range of media - videos, animation, installation - it 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.
