BIOGRAPHY

 

Michelle LEE Ho-wing obtained Master of Fine Arts degree from the Chinese University of Hong Kong. Having an affiliation with Archive of the People and Floating Projects, she conceives a framework through social research and creative practices with a variety of media. As an educator, she encompasses responsibility to inspire learners by incorporating autonomous, serendipity and intuition in art learning.

Michelle extracts significant lines from the vast sea of writings with keen perception, and further represents and rephrases the text in a specific context, which resonates with the original literature and social circumstances. Michelle’s work is characterized by her interest in triangular relationship between author, reader and text. Her current research is related to the linkage among archive and library and the circulation of the looted library books. Her recent project includes the artist online archives presented at the Seoul Mediacity Biennale 2018 (Seoul).
