Kingsley Ng (b. 1980) lives and works in Hong Kong. He is an interdisciplinary artist with a focus on conceptual, site-specific, participatory and process-based projects. He often works with the ephemeral and intangible, such as light, sound, space and time. Light is often used not only as a medium but also as a metaphor for art making—to cast light on the imperceptible, hidden or forgotten.
Ng's work has been featured in international institutions and exhibitions, such as Art Basel Hong Kong (2017), Contemporary Art Centre South Australia (2016), Museum of Contemporary Art of Rome (2014), Guangzhou Triennial (2012), Land Art Biennial Mongolia (2012), Echigo Tsumari Triennial Japan (2009), and IRCAM—Centre Pompidou in France (2006). He is the recipient of the Hong Kong Arts Development Council Best Artist Award in Media Arts 2014, Asian Cultural Council Fellowship 2013, and Hong Kong Contemporary Art Biennial Award 2009. Ng received postgraduate training at Le Fresnoy—National Studio of Contemporary Arts in France under the tutelage of Alain Fleischer, Andrea Cera, Atau Tanaka and Gary Hill and graduated les felicitation du jury à l'unanimité. He also holds a MSc in Sustainable Design from the University of Edinburgh, and a BFA New Media Art degree from Ryerson University in Toronto. He is currently assistant professor at the Academy of Visual Arts, Hong Kong Baptist University.
