劉清華生於1991年香港﹐2014年獲得香港城市大學創意媒體文學士(榮譽)學位。擅長以片段式的影像探索敍事的可能,及以個人與城市記憶作為主要創作題材。作品著眼於不同媒介本身的獨特性及其質感之可塑性,媒界涉及錄像、定格動畫、裝置等元素。她的標誌性作品通過投放大量勞動和時間累積創作而成,物質在影像的世界裡不斷重組、形塑、拆解,並與城市的邊緣以至個人的記憶與想像進行連結,延展。同時,作品希望打破媒體藝術冰冷的印象,刻劃出人的溫度與身體留下的痕跡,也著重創作與成像的過程,比起精緻高清的視覺元素,她更響往略帶粗糙與不穩定的影像,並強調物質的消逝性和流動性。

 

作品多次參加各地展覽與影展,如:奧地利林茲電子藝術節、瑞士國際動畫節Animatou、日本Image Forum Festival、倫敦Two Temple Place,香港IFVA媒體藝術節、香港大館當代藝術館、西九自由空間等等。劉清華於2020年進駐大館藝術家工作室,2022年為台灣南瀛獎得主。

 

現工作於香港和台灣。

Born in Hong Kong in 1991, Jess gained her BA (Honours) in Creative Media at the City University of Hong Kong in 2014. Jess’ work applies themes such as narrative fragments, body memory and focus on iterative manual processes and the aggregation of time. Jess’ work involves a wide range of media - videos, animation, installation - it explores the uniqueness and the malleability of each different medium, for example, outlining the fiction and reality with stop-motion animation. Her iconic works are created through the accumulation of labour and time. The material is constantly reorganised, shaped and dismantled in the world of video, connecting and extending with the memory and imagination of the city as well as the individual self. At the same time, her works aim to break the cold impression of media art, to portray the temperature of people, the traces left by her body, and to emphasise the process of creation and imaging. 


Jess’ artworks have been exhibited and screened internationally in: Ars Electronica, Austria, Animatou - International Animation Film Festival, Switzerland, Image Forum Festival 2022, Japan, Two Temple Place, London, IFVA Media Art Festival, Hong Kong, Tai Kwun Contemporary, Hong Kong, West Kowloon FreeSpace, Hong Kong and etc. Jess was the selected artist of Tai Kwun Contemporary Artists' Studio Residency 2020 and awarded the Nanying Prize from Taiwan 2022. 

 

Jess lives and works in Hong Kong and Taiwan.
