About the Artist
Lau Wai (born in Hong Kong) is a multi-media artist whose works utilize video, photography, and installation to explore the multilateral constructions of identity concerning race, gender and the notion of belonging.

Her interests and sources of materials range from personal and historical archives to cinematic imagery, popular culture and digital media. Her works are in the permanent collections at M+ (Hong Kong); The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston (United States); and Alexander Tutsek – Stiftung foundation (Germany); among others. She has participated in numerous exhibitions in Europe, Asia, and the United States. She currently lives and works in New York City.
