Wong Wai Yin

In addition to presenting Wong Wai Yin’s solo exhibition “Without Trying” at Spring Workshop in the summer of 2016, we are delighted to feature Wong’s collaborative work with her partner Kwan Sheung Chi in “Dismantling the Scaffold” at Tai Kwun Contemporary.

Wong experiments with a variety of media, ranging from painting, sculpture, collage, installations and photography.
