May Yeung is a graduate of the University of Chicago with majors in visual arts and political science. She specializes in sculpture and photography.
After the public exhibitions of her work entitled Citation at Chicago Union Station, Rockefeller Chapel, and Regenstein Library, Yeung has developed a great interest in public art installation, particularly the relationship between sculpture and viewers.
With an interest to examine and question this relationship further, Yeung’s works What If, Kiss Me, and Hold Me, were shown at the Logan Arts Center, DOVA Gallery, and Harper Memorial Library, inviting viewers to contemplate the role of art in their lives.
Through the Chicago Torture Justice Memorial exhibition at the Art Institute of Chicago, she de-abstracted the memorialized and re-established the silenced into official memory. Her installation Cocoon for the Hong Kong-Netherlands Exchange Project peels back layers of the ordinary to re-examine the definition of home and reflect on our identity.
