Enoch Cheng is an independent artist. His practice spans moving image, installation, curating, dance, events, theatre, and performance. Concerned with the everyday subtleties in contemporary urban lives, his works explore recurrent themes of place, travel, fiction, memory, time, migration and extinction. His recent film installation trilogy on mythology, different species in nature, and identity, which have been shown in France, Germany, Hong Kong and USA, has been developed into the performance in this festival. He received his MA in Creative Writing at Goldsmiths, London, and BA in English Literature and Art History at the University of Hong Kong; he has also lectured at Hong Kong Art School. He is the recipient of Award for Young Artist at Hong Kong Arts Development Awards. He was an artist fellow at Akademie Schloss Solitude in Stuttgart; and artist-in-residence at Zagreb Center for Independent Culture and Youth in Zagreb, Cité internationale des arts in Paris, and Stiftung Insel Hombroich in Neuss.
