Genevieve Leong

b. 1992, Singapore
Based in London & Singapore

Genevieve Leong completed her BA Fine Art (Photography & Digital Imaging) at Nanyang Technological University, School of Art, Design & Media (NTU, ADM), Singapore. She is currently doing her MA Contemporary Art Practice (Critical Practice) 
at the Royal College of Art (RCA), London, and is due to complete the course in June 2019.  

Genevieve Leong is a visual artist whose practice attempts to visualise the intangible. She is often intrigued by
emotions that come in quietness and how that same quietness transforms common places into unfamiliar spaces.
The starting point of her work is often image-based, and the image then becomes a trigger point in realising
the visualisation of the intangible through other varied elements like installation, text, moving image.
