Hanqing Mona GBA
Hanqing Ma (b.1990) and Mona Yoo (b.1987) are artist Duo, and visual researcher. Respectively, they collaborate to make image-based installations in relation to sites of architectural and cultural interest. Since 2014, their practices have encompassed photography and sculptural objects that transform monochrome print to site-specific installations. Their creative passion departs from the philosophical study and alludes to the concept of phenomenological space. It is reflected through the investigation into urban habitats, public transient space, and historic facades where time and traces layered and remained.
They are the winner of MRSS Gilbert Bayes Award(UK), OCI Young Creatives(KR), and Bloomberg New Contemporary(UK). Their works have been selected and internationally exhibited at including Institute of Contemporary Art (UK), Camden Art Centre (UK), Photo London (UK), Talbot rice gallery (UK), OCI museum of Art (KR), JCC Art centre (KR), Red Gate (CN), Athen Photo (GR), and Deauville Photo (France). They are also selected as artist residency programmes in Deauville (France), New York (USA), Beijing (China), and Niigata (Japan). They both received a MA from the Royal College of Art, London.
