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 intends to reveal both the medium's limitations and potential in his image-based works which are often medium-specific and process-driven. Medium-specificity in photography, the characteristic qualities being specific to photographic medium, is a vital source of inspiration for Chan's artistic practice. Challenging the limits and exploring the potential of photographic medium become the foundation of his various unconventional image-making processes, which he considers to be as essential as their aesthetic outcomes to constructing meanings in his works.
Chan holds a BFA from Savannah College of Art and Design and an MFA from School of Creative Media, City University of Hong Kong. His works have been shown as part of 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 held at Scratch Art Space in Sydney and Lumenvisum in Hong Kong. He was a finalist for the Photolucida Critical Mass award in 2015.
