May Yeung


A graduate of the University of Chicago majored in political science and visual arts, May Yeung specializes in sculpture and photography. After the success of the public exhibitions of her work entitled Citation (a pair of quotation marks) at Chicago Union Station, Rockefeller Chapel and Regenstein Library, May’s interest in public art installation, particularly the relationship between sculpture and viewers, grew. With a view to examine and question this relationship further, May’s work entitled What If (a question mark), Kiss Me (a pair of eyelashes) and Hold Me (a pair of breasts), which were shown at Logan Arts Center, Dova Gallery and Harper Memorial Library, allow viewers to contemplate and query the role of art in their lives. Through Chicago Torture Justice Memorial exhibition at the Art Institute of Chicago, she de-abstracted the memorialized and re-established the silenced into official memory. The photos and videos in Reinventing Home peels back the layers of the ordinary to re-examine the definition of home and reflect on our identity.
