MAN MEI TO - 文 美 桃


Live in Hong Kong

 

 

 

 

Man Mei To (b.1990) obtained her Bachelor degrees in Arts from Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology University (RMIT) and Hong Kong Arts School in 2017, majoring in painting. Her artworks incorporate various media such as painting, photography, video, sound, installation and mixed media.

 

Man’s  artworks typically engage the “ the body ” and “ the city ”. She consciously carries her sensitivity of searching body intimacy to explore the landscape in city ; urbanized life ; fading scenario and vanishing objects around the cityscape. Her works aim at providing awareness on ‘ his ’ existence, and the dialogue between his ’ fragility ’ and  ‘ his ’ silence by objectifying, cloning, reconstructing and quantifying found objects around. And looking for the weight of these objects once they had from their fragment. She hopes to find a closed relationship between the land and our body through her art practice, until reaching a natural state for both to exist.

 

Man has initiated her solo exhibition in ( A walk with A3, Hong Kong 2016 ) ,   ( Floating Projects, Hong Kong , 2018 ). And she has previously participated in Primitive Sense Art festival ( Omachi City, Nagano,Japan 2016 ), Ensemble ( VT Artsalon, Taipei  2017 ), etc.

文 美 桃


生活於香港

 

文  美 桃    生於1990年,獲皇家墨爾本理工大學及香港藝術學院藝術學士學位,主修繪畫。她的作品混合多種媒介,包括繪畫、攝影、錄像、聲音、裝置及混合媒介等。

 

 

文氏作品多涉及「城市」及「身體」兩種不同探索命題。由身體的親密性游走到城市的景觀,探究城市化的生活,消逝的事件與物件。用物化,複製,重塑,以及量化的方式,令你重新注視到他的存在,他的脆弱與沉默之間的對話。在脆弱、零碎的物件中尋找他曾存在的重量。把身體與土地拉得更近,帶到最自然的狀態。

在2016年舉辦了首個個人展覽《洗衣店》 (A walk with A3, 香港),其他作品亦曾於國外展出,如 《原始感覺藝術祭 - 2016》(大町市, 日本),《類聚集》(非常廟藝文空間, 台北),《公共藝術: Ring Ring Belt - 2018  》 (首爾, 韓國) 及 《光州國際藝術博覽會 - 2018》(光州, 韓國)等等。
