ABOUT MY SPACE

The living area, kitchen, and bathrooms are shared with two other artists, therefore, please keep the space clean and tidy, and no smoking in doors. They are both wonderful artists who love fun conversations in art, space travels, cruel politics, food discoveries, and everything else.

ABOUT ME & MY WORK
Magdalen was born in Hong Kong but moved to the USA at age 13 and then moved back to Hong Kong in 2006.
Magdalen has described her practice as dealing with "mundane objects and sensual imageries". Wong takes inspiration for her work from elements in her everyday life, these include Japanese animation, toy stores, bakeries, wet markets and Sham Shui Po.
Magdalen is interested in altering mundane objects—through various mediums such as photography, video and sculpture—to provoke viewers to seek different narratives and the unique beauty within these everyday artifacts. Although her work can sometimes be viewed as a critique of consumer culture, she states that the intention of her work is to provoke "a mystery in the ordinary".
