Leung Mee-ping 梁美萍
Mixed Media 混合媒介
Leung Mee-ping, born in Hong Kong. She received her BFA from L’Ecole Nationale Superieure des Beaux-Arts a Paris, France, MFA from California Institute of the Arts, Los Angeles, USA and PhD at The Chinese University of Hong Kong (Religious & Cultural Studies Department). Currently, she is Professor and Director of Centre for Research and Development in Visual Arts at The Academy of Visual Arts, Hong Kong Baptist University.
She believes creativity originates from the daily culture which provides a conceptual perspective. Her creative practice includes installation, mixed media, and public and community art , etc.
Through a research-based practice progressing to experimental interaction and integration, Leung Mee-ping’s works can integrate elements and platforms of theatre, design, commercial space and social space, in order to extend performance or action; those can be read as issue-based creativity. Her works concern the ethic, community and memories of the human living situation which closely intertwine with her ongoing research into visual culture and globalisation.
