Artist Leah Jordan
Leah Jordan is a British artist based in Plymouth, UK. Jordan’s work is strongly influenced by her feminist views and explores the female body. The artist had used print, sculpture, performance and photography throughout her practice, but most commonly uses textiles in her work.
“Beauty in Hong Kong” compares the views of women living in Hong Kong, collected via survey, and the media surrounding women’s bodies, seen in magazines and advertisements, to highlight the realisation that the standards set by the media are unrealistic goals for women.
“Beauty in Hong Kong” Leah通過問倦調查，收集身處香港女性對此命題的觀點，以及從各種媒體，如雜誌中看到有關針對女性身段的廣告等； 來強調媒體制定的標準對女性來說是不切實際的目標。
Artist Hyeojae Han
Hyeojae is from Seoul, South Korea. She uses various materials and media to express her art. She shows her daily life from the perspective of a single mother through cartoons.
In South Korea, there are many prejudices against single mothers. When people know that Hyeojae raises children alone, they have high expectations for her. Hyeojae believes that coming to Hong Kong to participate in the artist residency program is an important experience for her. She can spend her own time on making artwork without taking care of her son. Paradoxically, her son is also the biggest motivation of her creation. Every child she saw in Hong Kong could find the shadow of her son. She cannot deny his importance to her own being and is a turning point of herself.
