Mae Chan (b. 1991) is a multi-disciplinary artist based in Hong Kong. Rooted in poetic, narrative, and artisanal traditions, her mixed-media sculptures reframe objects within the contexts of intimacy, boundary, and judgment. Playing with the semiotics of form and touch, she dissects subtle emotional shifts, leveraging the human form as a foundational metaphor. After she graduated from the Royal College of Art (2021) with an MA in Textiles, Chan received the 'Developing Your Creative Practice' Grant from Arts Council England and the 'Air Green Residency' Grant from the Norwegian Textile Artists' Association 2022. She was also a finalist nominee for the 2021 Ingram Prize and The New Craftsmen Award at Cockpit Arts (2021). Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally, including Thrown (UK), London Craft Week (UK), Visual Arts Scotland (UK), Unit 1 Gallery | Workshop (UK), Young Space Views (UK), HART (HK), Kühlhaus (Berlin) and Søndre Green (Norway).
