Chan Hong Yui Clement (b. 1992) is a Hong Kong-based visual artist working primarily with images. Through his diverse approaches to image-making, Chan is interested in revealing both the medium's limitations and potential in his image-based works which are often medium-specific and process-driven. The notion of medium-specificity in photography, the characteristic qualities being specific to photographic medium, is a vital source of inspiration for Chan's creative practice. Exposing the weaknesses while stretching the capabilities of photographic medium become the foundation of his various unconventional image-making processes, which he considers to be as essential as their aesthetic/artistic outcomes to constructing meanings in his works.
Chan holds a BFA from the Savannah College of Art and Design and an MFA from the School of Creative Media, City University of Hong Kong. His works have been shown at numerous photo festivals internationally, including the International Photo Festival Leiden (2018); Duesseldorf Photo (2018); Photoville, New York (2017); LOOK/17: Liverpool International Photography Festival (2017); and Krakow Photomonth Festival (2016). Chan has also exhibited at the Vermont Center for Photography, Perth Centre for Photography and Hong Kong Visual Arts Centre, among others. His solo exhibitions have been presented at Scratch Art Space in Sydney and Lumenvisum in Hong Kong. He was a finalist for the Photolucida Critical Mass award in 2015.
