IV Chan is a Hong Kong-based artist and costume designer whose multidisciplinary practice incorporates sculpture, installation and performance. IV’s artistic interests are rooted in the complexity of the human body and the mind. Through her eerie yet childlike sculptural works and installations, she reflects upon her own problematic bodily experiences while exploring themes such as mythology, religion and psychoanalysis. IV’s latest work deals with the “death” of childhood and the detachment of the parent and is presented as part of the group exhibition The Thread is Not Straight, currently showing at Denny Dimin Gallery in Hong Kong.
