Ng Hui Hsien is an artist, writer and researcher. Her art practice uses photography as a medium to explore themes such as consciousness, the nature of reality, (im)materiality and interconnectivity; they are sites where the unconscious can find expression, indirectly or otherwise.
Hui Hsien’s work has been internationally exhibited in various institutions and festivals, including the Martin Parr Foundation (UK), Objectifs Centre of Photography and Film (Singapore), Photo Bangkok (Thailand), Obscura Photography Festival (Malaysia), Dali International Photography Festival (China), Athens Photo Festival (Greece), ZK/U Berlin (Germany) and Tokyo Art Book Fair (Japan), and most recently an ongoing solo exhibition at the Reykjavík Museum of Photography (Iceland). Additionally, she has been featured in publications such as Photo District News, Plural, Fraction Magazine, dienacht, Fisheye Magazine, Emerging Photographer and Invisible Photographer Asia (IPA).
Hui Hsien’s self-published, limited-edition, hand-stitched artist book – The Weight of Air – is distributed by Reminders Photography Stronghold (Japan). The Weight of Air is also in both public and private collections including the New York Public Library (United States), Reykjavík Museum of Photography (Iceland), Hellenic Centre for Photography (Greece), Asia Pacific Photobook Archive (Australia) and is one of the featured books in How We See: Photobooks by Women (10×10 Photobooks, 2018).
