Owen Leong is a contemporary artist working across performance, photography, video and sculpture. His artistic practice uses personal mythologies to explore identity and transformation. He is interested in systems of power, culture and representation. His work uses the body, subjectivity and personhood to reflect on universal aspects of human nature.
He is an Australian born Chinese artist living in a nation with a history of racial anxiety. During his Breathe residency, Leong will be developing new sculpture and video works to explore the constructs with which the body is physically, socially and culturally framed.
