Tiffany Sia

b. 1988, Hong Kong, China; lives and works in New York, U.S.

Tiffany Sia’s multidisciplinary practice encompasses film, writing, installation, and photography, as she explores themes of place, migration, cultural hybridity, and the complexities of contemporary urban life. Sia's work reflects her experiences navigating the intersecting cultures and histories of Hong Kong and port cities at large. Through her art, she investigates the social and political implications of globalization, examining how they shape individual and collective identities and conceptions of place. Sia's evocative imagery often captures the energy and contradictions of urban environments, inviting viewers to contemplate the impact of rapid urbanization on personal narratives and communal spaces. Sia brings a research-driven approach to her practice, often blending documentary elements and found footage with poetic storytelling, blurring the boundaries between fact and fiction. Sia's writing and photography converge to create nuanced narratives that explore the intimate connections between place, memory, and personal histories. Exploring mediums in their hybrid forms, Sia offers alternative paths to encounter the sublime, drawing a sense of disorientation and unease along the way.
