Isaac Chong Wai graduated from the Academy of Visual Arts at Hong Kong Baptist University with a BA in Visual Arts in 2012, and the Bauhaus-Universität in Weimar, Germany, with a MFA in Public Art and New Artistic Strategies in 2016. Chong works with diverse media, including performance, site-specific installation, public art, video, photography and multimedia. He transforms the tensions, intervention and interactions of human bodies into a microcosm of human relationality in social systems. Strongly influenced by personal events and global phenomena, he engages themes of collectivism and individualism, politics of time and space, border, migration, war, identity politics, LGBTQ, public sphere and human rights.
His recent solo exhibition includes “Chapter A : The Rehearsal of the Futures” (Apartment der Kunst, Munich, Germany, 2018), “Chapter B: An Artistic Archive of Borders” (Kunstraum München, Munich, Germany, 2018), and “What is the future in the past? And what is the past in the future?” (Bauhaus Museum, Weimar, Germany, 2016). In 2018, Chong was commissioned by Hong Kong M+ Museum to produce the performance work Rehearsal of the Futures: Police Training Exercises, which was performed as part of the “M+ Live Art: Audience as Performer” project. His recent group exhibitions include “BERLIN MASTERS” (Stiftung Brandenburger Tor, Berlin, Germany, 2017), and “Forecast Forum” (Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin, Germany, 2017). Chong’s work is collected by the Burger Collection.
Chong currently lives and works in Berlin, Germany and Hong Kong.
