AiR at Ignite Studios | 29 August - 3 October 2018
UUendy is a multi-disciplinary artist based in Hong Kong creating works that explore the discourse of art, design and culture in relation to nature. The main theme of UUendy's works centre on 'animals and nature', a universal and inclusive subject permeating all cultures, languages and lifestyles. The artist's participatory, research and experiment based arts practice engages with communities through workshops and site-specific installations to explore complex themes of society, culture and conservation of our natural world.
UUendy completed her Masters in Critical Design at Goldsmiths, University of London, and holds a Bachelor's Degree in Design (Industrial & Product) at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University School of Design. She is a multidisciplinary designer and artist with a strong passion for experimental art and critical designs.
UUendy has been involved in a number of design events and exhibitions (e.g. as an invited speaker at TEDx, as an invited artist for both charity and commercial organisations such as Hong Kong Maritime Museum, Absolut Vodka, Lomography, Vans etc). In 2017, she was selected to take part in the Guandu International Nature Art Festival on behalf of Hong Kong. In 2013, she was chosen to participate in Hong Kong x Brussels Design Exchange Program (HKBX). Being trained as a product designer at the early stage of her career, UUendy also has the experience of managing product development, manufacturing and commercialisation of design projects, as well as curating exhibitions and activities for galleries.
