About

Heyse Ip (b.1995, Hong Kong) is a multi-disciplinary artist and researcher based in London and Hong Kong. His current works in moving image, performance, sculpture and sound explore themes such as power dynamics in surveillance and public spaces through a lens of absurdity and humour. Informed by his interest in the idea of a human becoming an animal and a human becoming an apparatus, he creates a deliberate intersection between the digital and the animal, offering alternative narratives around the subjects of his works.

He holds an MA in Contemporary Art Practice from the Royal College of Arts, UK (2020-22) and a BA in Fine Art from Chelsea College of Arts, UK (2015-18). In 2019, he had his first solo show at Lumenvisum, Hong Kong. Ip also exhibited and performed as part of various group shows, including Meta Alarm (2022) and Here’s one I made earlier (2022) by Offsite Projects and Plicnik Space Initiative (2020), amongst others.
