Chan Ka Kiu

Chan Ka Kiu (b.1995 Toronto, Canada) is a Hong Kong based artist, graduated in 2021 from City University of Hong Kong, School of Creative Media (MFA). Chan’s previous exhibitions include solo exhibition with Parasite, “Don’t come so fast, darling” (Art Basel 2019, Hong Kong), and group shows “Very Natural Actions” (TaiKwun, Hong Kong, 2020), and “Tree Fall in the Woods and No One’s There” (Power Station of Art, Shanghai, 2018). 


Focusing on intangible mundane bizarreries of secular lives, Chan Ka Kiu romanticizes daily scenarios into playful puns and honest confessions. In the equal power of sneers and tears, her practice penetrates through humor leaving its bitter aftertaste. Reflecting on accumulating personal experiences, and pointing to the absurdity and paradoxes hidden within routine, Chan playfully juxtaposes seemingly unrelated scenarios in everyday life, reenacting the commonly missed.
