Gayle Chong Kwan

Born in 1973 in Edinburgh, UK. Lives and works in London, UK.

Gayle Chong Kwan is a London-based artist, whose large-scale photographic installation, sound, participatory, and video work is exhibited nationally and internationally, both in major galleries and in the public space.
Her work is an ongoing investigation into simulacra and the sublime, which she explores through constructed immersive environments and mises-en-scène. The personal and global politics of food and tourism is a major focus of her practice that is often specific to a context and linked to the exploration of histories, memory and senses. The artist's pieces take the viewer on a journey across countries and civilizations, exploring the relationship between food and culture, and underlying the importance of waste in giving measure to our lives.
