about

Law Yuk-mui graduated from The Chinese University of Hong Kong with a Master of Fine Arts (MFA). She is the co-founder of the artist-run organisation Rooftop Institute.

Using image, sound and installation as her mediums of preference, and adopting the methodology of field study and collecting, she often intervenes in the mundane space and daily life of the city and catches the physical traces of history, psychological pathways of human, the marks of time and the political power in relation to geographic space. Law often digs beyond the surface, through which she would recover fragments of narratives and micro histories. She is also sensitive to remnants in the art making process and finds imaginative ways to re-use and reactivate these things.

Her works were extensively exhibited in Asia, including:’Victoria East :FUSE Artist Residency’ Videotage, Hong Kong (2017), ‘Talkover/Handover 2.0’,1a space, Hong Kong (2017),’Busan International Short Film Festiva’,South Korea(2017), ‘5th Singapore International Photography Festival (SIPF)’, Singapore (2016), ‘Time Test: International Video Art Research Exhibition’, Beijing & Guangzhou (2016), ‘Both Sides Now ii – it was the best of times it was the worst of times’ Britain, China, Hong Kong (2015), ‘A Room with A View – Her Hong Kong stories through the lens of six female artists’(2015), ‘Here are the years that walk between’ special commission video project by Hong Kong Sinfonietta (2013), ‘The 2nd Beijing International Film Festival’ (2012), ‘The Kuala Lumpur Experimental Film and Video Festival’(2011), ‘The 16th Hong Kong Independent Short Film & Video Awards’ (2010), ‘Inter-city: Art in Busan’ South Korea (2009). Her prose “migration, insomnia, dreams” was included in Pocket2: Say Listen .
