Chingsum Jessye Luk

The work of Chingsum Jessye Luk (Hong Kong, 1982) addresses the limits of the artistic and its relationship with the everyday, it is a meditation on the evolution of time, memory, perception and language. Luk collects small and simple objects from everyday life, and her interest lies in the monotonous and repetitive gestures. Stemming from the found object, her work reflects her obsessive need to collect the everyday, measure, count, accumulate, catalog, inventory and modify it in a methodical, sometimes pseucientific way. Her work is a study of the cyclical and infinite nature of time, an exercise in discipline, a praise of the trivial, a tribute to boredom.

In 2019, Chingsum Jessye Luk received the City of Zurich Art Scholarship.
