Ko Sin Tung, ‘CLOSED 24HRS’, 2016, Edouard Malingue Gallery

About Ko Sin Tung

Colored-in wallpaper, patched walls, blurred images of domestic paraphernalia—these are but some of Ko Sin Tung’s visual dialogues with the intimate, yet urban environments that people create. Concerned with the impact of 'things,' Ko Sin Tung investigates, through a myriad of mediums and materials, the psychological influences of private objects and the idiosyncratic functions they have been personally channeled to fulfill. A graduate from the Department of Fine Arts at The Chinese University of Hong Kong, Ko Sin Tung observes the city’s inhabitants, their close-quarters, and identifies with curiosity their values as dictated through the items they treasure and keep, slowly observing how these objects mirror ways of life, or in the very least, illustrate what is expected for living.
