Wong Wai Kiu , Jay is a student who studies in MA in Fine art at Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2015. She also a member of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants in the United Kingdom in 2011 and obtained a Bachelor Degree of Applied Accounting from Oxford Brookes University in 2013.

She hopes to communicate her situations and experiences from her life, through her watercolour painting, ceramic and performance art, and hopes to uncover the subconscious meanings that can be forgotten or ignored by the people who live there.

Her research is on the subjectivity of memory: Is memory material or immaterial? Is memory embedded in objects? – A quest that doesn’t have the intention to be solved but yet to be the source for many artworks.
‘My work explores the documentation of the ephemeral. I explore the immaterially of an object or a place; the invisible, the subjective, and the unspeakable. I think of memory as built in the present rather than something from the past; and I am interested in traces and layers as textures of memory and nostalgia.’
