Kingsley Ng is an inter-disciplinary artist and designer with a focus on conceptual and site-specific projects. He believes that art helps us to mediate our environment, whether as a viewer or participator. Recent projects include Twenty-Five Minutes Older, a commission by Art Basel last year which takes the audience on a moving tram, and After the Deluge, presented earlier this year in an underground storm-water tank the size of 40 Olympic-sized swimming pools.
His works have been featured in notable exhibitions and international venues. Examples include the Museum of Contemporary Arts in Rome Italy, Contemporary Art Centre of South Australia, Guangzhou Triennial in China, Land Art Biennial in Mongolia, Echigo Tsumari Art Triennial in Japan, IRCAM – Centre Pompidou in France, Lille Europe Pavilion in Shanghai Expo, InterAccess Electronic Media Arts Centre in Canada, the Hong Kong Museum of Art, and Art Basel Hong Kong.
Kingsley has received postgraduate training at Le Fresnoy – National Studio of Contemporary Arts in France under the tutelage of renowned artists including Alain Fleischer, Andrea Cera, Atau Tanaka and Gary Hill, graduated with the highest honours (Les felicitation du jury à l'unanimité). He continued his studies with an MSc Sustainable Design degree from the University of Edinburgh in the UK and a BFA New Media Art degree from the Ryerson University in Canada. He is currently Assistant Professor of the Hong Kong Baptist University Academy of Visual Arts.
