Jerry Tong is an artist-educator based in the United Kingdom currently. Jerry's artistic practice lies between sound, video, text, spatial design and photography. He explores the invisible relationship between space, society and identity, with a strong focus on the fluidity and multiplicity of Hong Kong migrants and water-based identity.
Jerry believes that there is an inseparable bond between places, citizens and the community. His methodology is greatly influenced by Hong Kong video artist Law Yuk Mui. Therefore, he often intervenes in spaces through field research, using video, sound, text and images, as well as historical research on the complexity of identity and community.
