Sonia Cheung Yee Kwan graduated from The Academy of Visual Arts at Hong Kong Baptist University. Using moving images and installation as her mediums, she often walks adrift in the city and finds herself attracted to the subtleties of mundane motion and inconspicuous objects which translate for her into a psychological experience. Her works explore themes of isolation, memory, and the destruction that always accompanies transformation. She represents these themes through methods of communication and in the nexus between humans and city space. Her works have been exhibited in Hong Kong,  USA and Japan.

張綺君畢業於香港浸會大學視覺藝術院。她的創作以影像及裝置為主要媒介。她常於城市裏漫無目的地行走時,被平凡慣性的動作及不起眼的事物所吸引,並代入成為自身的想像。張氏透過念感悟城市空間與人之間的聯繫以及不同物質的交流方式,再轉化成探索孤立、記憶和破壞等的概念。作品曾於香港、美國及日本展出。
