Law Yuk-mui is a multidisciplinary artist,  currently lives and works between Japan and Hong Kong. 

Graduated from The Chinese University of Hong Kong with a Master of Fine Arts (MFA). She is the co-founder and deputy director of the artist-run organisation Rooftop Institute (2016-2022).

Using performative video and sound 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.

Law Yuk-mui have been named to Foundwork Artist Prize 2021 short list, and received The Awards for young artist (media art category) of Hong Kong Arts development Awards and the Excellence Award (Media Art Category) of The 23rd ifva Awards in 2018.

ロウ‧ユックム 
2010年香港中文大学美術学部修士課程を修了しました。パフォーマンスや、映像・サウンドを用いたインスタレーションを中心に創作をしています。フィールドリサーチを駆使することで、都市空間と日常生活の中から歴史の痕跡や人々の心理的軌跡、時間の形跡、地政学などの関係を掬いだすことを主題としています。またより深く掘り下げそこから小さな断片を掘り起こし、そのミクロストリアに触れてそれらを再構成することでそこに新たな意味を創造します。2021年, ニューヨークのFoundwork Artist Prizeのファイナリストに選ばれた、2018年に香港芸術発展賞の若手アーティスト賞(メディアアートカテゴリー)と第23ifvaアワードの優秀賞を受賞した。

ロウ・ユックムイさんの作品はよく「水域」をテーマにして、香港の地理を描き出している。例えば「ヴィクリアの東」は干拓で消滅した海を探す。「潮が流れてくる方向」は海を渡った、国境を越える人の移動の物語を記述する。 「水域」が彼女の作品では、香港の地理と地政学を表す主な要素であるだけではなく、個人の記憶とアイデンティティーと感情も反映している。 ——「川の上では誰も歌わない」の展覧会図録、瞿暢(クー・チャング)「So Much Water」から 抜粋)

羅玉梅畢業於香港中文大學藝術碩士,是藝術家營運機構「 天台塾 」創辦人之一。創作以展演性錄像及聲音裝置藝術置為主要媒介。常以田野調查和搜集為方法,介入城市空間及日常,捕捉歷史的物理痕跡、人的心理軌跡、時間的形跡與地緣政治的關係。羅玉梅亦擅於挖掘表層下的細碎敘事與物事,鉤沉微歷史,以及重新想像創作的剩餘物,賦予其全新意義。

羅玉梅入圍2021 Foundwork Artist Prize 最終候選名單, 於2018年同時獲香港藝術發展局藝術新秀獎(媒體藝術)和第十五屆ifva獨立短片及影像媒體比賽(媒體藝術組)傑出作品獎。
