NG Hiu Tung, Rita

NG Hiu Tung, Rita creates works that are self-reflective and emotionally expressive. Inspired by her daily experience as a woman, she creates paintings and embroidery, in order to challenge the deviations and stereotypes of the female identity that are shaped by traditional and modern ideologies.

'I value traditions, but I also rebel against them. I think they are the two sides of the same coin. I like to find outdated dogmas in different religions and traditions and to criticise their authority and indisputable existence, in order to find the balance between traditions and our contemporary lifestyles.'
