Liyen Chong

YEAR OF RESIDENCY
March - May 2012

An artist of Malaysian-Chinese descent, Liyen Chong boldly negotiates art forms, motifs
and languages to create works that are conceptually rich and visually immaculate.
Magritte’s bowler hat, silvery moon-bowls and writhing dragons have all been
meticulously rendered by Chong’s pliant practice. She has been known to replicate the
glossy typographical designs of advertising to create unique self-portraits that
combine painting, performance, and photography.

Never erring far from the body and the self, Chong’s works resist deciphering and act as
little monuments to attempts at belonging and an accompanying questioning of
materials, rules and meaning.
