ARTISTS / Mak Ka Yan
Mak Ka Yan is definitely a name to pay attention to, she explores human relationship and the linkage between human and the city in her works. Mak often begins from scenes from her daily life, injecting imaginative fantasies to resolve her self-imposed restrictions in life, depicting her dreams and fantasies – sweet and brutal; happy and sad; tender and playful –all personal, brave and honest. Her works are multidisciplinary and include painting, sculpture, videography, and performance.
