LEUNG Chi Wo + Sara WONG

  • Began collaboration 1992 in Hong Kong
  • Based in Hong Kong

Leung Chi Wo majored in photographic culture at the Photography Research and Archiving Centre (CRAF) in Italy, and went on to earn an M.F.A. at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. Sara Wong received her B.A. from the Chinese University of Hong Kong, followed by a Master of Landscape Architecture from the University of Hong Kong. Leung and Wong began their creative collaboration in 1992, while continuing to pursue their individual practices. The pair was chosen to represent Hong Kong for the city’s first contribution to the Venice Biennale, where they presented City Cookie—in which cookies were made in the shape of the sky that peeks through high-rise buildings. Museum of the Lost, a more recent photographic work, focuses on random bystanders in old snapshots. Here, an affection for the overlooked coexists with a commentary on the nature of photography—a medium that captures mechanically and indiscriminately.
