Nicole Wong

CV (PDF)

Nicole Wong (b. 1990, Hong Kong) graduated from Nottingham Trent University in the UK with a Bachelor of Arts in Fine Art in 2012.

Working beyond the bounds of any single medium, Wong adopts a process-driven approach to investigating philosophical questions associated with time, the tenuous connections between words and objects, and the limits of communication. Often quiet and unassuming, Wong’s works invite introspective thought through their appeal to universal sentiments and desires. Deftly weaving together wordplay and double-entendre throughout her practice, Wong explores the connections between literal and connotative meanings. Wong’s works enter the realm of semiotics, using everyday objects and common materials to question the relationship between signifier (a sign’s physical form) and signified (a sign’s meaning).

Wong’s first commercial solo exhibition, ‘Day in, day out’ was held at Rossi & Rossi London in 2017. In 2013, she was selected for the artist support programme by Soundpocket, won the Hong Kong Contemporary Art Award and was a finalist in the Hong Kong Art Prize and the Griffin Art Prize in London.

Wong was selected to present in the 2018 Biennale of Sydney, SUPERPOSITION: Equilibrium & Engagement, curated by Mami Kataoka.
