Born and living in Hong Kong, Teresa Leung (aka Leung Wai Man) exhibited her works previously in Armenia, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canary Islands, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, Italy, Slovenia, Spain, Turkey, the UK, and the US.
She was awarded a project grant for participation in an artist-in-residence program in Armenia during Sep-Dec 2015 by the Hong Kong Arts Development Council. She was also one of the 40 finalists selected from more than 3,100 entries in the Contemporary Talents 2012 competition organized by the Fondation Francois Schneider in France.
Leung’s interested in the possibilities of urban non-places, art-as-an-experience, and “Soviet space” in post-soviet countries such as those in South Caucasus, which led her to join artist-in-residence programs in Armenia’s capital city Yerevan in both 2014 and 2015 and continue her exploration after.
