Lau Hiu Tung



LAU HIU TUNG (b 1985)

Lau Hiu Tung lives and works in London and Hong Kong. Working in a variety of mediums, including painting, sculpture and performance, she explores themes surrounding gender, sexuality and identity within her practice.

In her 2022 solo exhibition I am in training don't kiss me (Flowers Gallery, Hong Kong), Lau transformed the space into a ‘gymnasium’ in order to explore the subject matter of the body and identity in association with the culture of the modern gym. Through sculptural assemblages, created using found objects; paintings characterised by minimal, expressive lines and shapes; and a series of performances that involved challenging interval training exercises, the exhibition highlighted the role the gym has in facilitating obsessive representations of the body and its significance as a social and therapeutic space.

Lau Hiu Tung received her BFA in Painting at the School of Visual Arts in New York, USA and MA in Painting at Royal College of Art in London, UK. Recent external solo and group exhibitions include DOOR at The Shophouse in Hong Kong (2021); A’fair, Hong Kong (2021 & 2020); A Cow’s Head and a Horse’s Jaw at Karin Weber Gallery in Hong Kong (2021); Don’t Forget to Look at the Moon at Alice Folker Gallery in Denmark (2020); and Dramas of the Human Heart, Hong Kong Fringe Club (2019).
