Artist Background

Graduated with a BA Hon. (fine art) in Goldsmiths College and a MSc in University of Westminster, United Kingdom. Currently working as an artist in Hong Kong.

She uses un-advanced technology, unsophisticated skills and materials (wire and packaging tape, plastic wrapped wire, textile fur, etc) from the industry to build up works and explores the fragile condition of human’s existence, the external and internal boundaries built around people.

She is working on a project called “ A call from the prehistoric time”. She uses the four basic elements in living: clothing, food, shelter and mobility, to explore the way of living and the system in society at our modern age.

She is one of the founding members of MIA (Mere Independent Artists) and bronze award winner of the ADC Award for Arts Education – Non-school category.

鄧凝梅分別於英國倫敦大學金匠學院純藝術學士及西敏寺大學資訊系統設計碩士畢業。現在香港從事藝術創作。

她用一些非高科技,不太先進的技巧,一些工業製成的物料〈如鐵、包裝膠紙、包膠鐵、毛織布等〉,去建造作品及探討人類存在的脆弱狀況,外內在對人的界限。

鄧凝梅正在從事「一個來自遠古的呼喚」的計劃。此計劃是從衣食住行中去探討現代的城市生活和社會制度。

她是「純粹獨立藝術家群」創辦人之一。也是2008香港藝術發展獎--藝術教育非學校組--銅獎得主。
