Florence Lam (b.1992 in Vancouver, Canada) Lam lives and works in Hong Kong. She works with wonder and magical thinking to fuse together current moral issues with child-like world views through performance art, poetry, video, and sound. The aim is to explore the fertility and sterility of the mind manifested through the properties of the biological body, and language as a hint to the evolution of human values and spiritual understanding. She obtained her MFA from Iceland Academy of the Arts in 2017 and her BA Fine Art from Central Saint Martins in 2014.Lam has performed around Asia and Europe, including HART haus (Hong Kong, 2022), Para Site (Hong Kong, 2021), Cattle Depot Artist Village (Hong Kong, 2021), Hidden Space (Hong Kong, 2020), Nanhai Gallery (Taipei, 2019), MACRO Testattio Mattatoio Art Museum (Rome, 2018), Kling & Bang (Reykjavík, 2018), and Manifesta 11 (Zürich, 2016). She has participated in festivals including A! Performance Festival (Akureyri, 2019), YÜP Festival (Osnabrück, 2019), ZABIH Performance Festival (Lviv, 2019), Reykjavík Arts Festival (Reykjavík, 2019), Performance Platform Lublin (Lublin, 2017), Sequences Art Festival (Reykjavík, 2017), and Performance Art Bergen Open (Bergen, 2017).
