Hui Serene Sze Lok (lives in the Netherlands and Hong Kong) aims to reframe and rethink conditions of the contemporary through politically driven art-making and research in her artistic practice. She addresses obscurity and nuances by creating an ontological shift of displacement in her installations, live works, and writings. Her works often raise questions such as how one responds to, or what one can possibly get out of—the moment of conflict, estrangement, or resistance, whilst exploring the diverse meanings of its complex contents—questions of authorship, authenticity, and authority. In 2021, she released her first book-length publication May We Live In Interesting Times—The Politics and Poetics of Ambivalence. Her work has been exhibited and performed internationally, most recently at Tai Kwun Contemporary, Hong Kong (2021) and TENT, Rotterdam (2022). Hui is one of the selected artist-researchers for the Research Academy by Zurich University of the Arts (2022). She received her MA from The Royal Academy, The Hague.
