CHOW Tsz Yiu is interested in studying sports and art, which leads her to pay more attention to body structures and their aesthetic values. Her practice encompasses sculpture and traditional crafts, based on the close relationships between different subjects, such as the relationships between human joints and human bodies. She transforms her observations into simple geometric shapes in order to highlight the details of each piece in a series. She believes her audience would then emphasise more on the structure of human bodies.
CHOW graduated from the Hong Kong Institute of Contemporary Culture, and obtained her Higher Diploma in Sculpture from Hong Kong Art School in 2018.
