Janice Ka-Wa Cheung was born in Hong Kong and has begun her studies of media art at City University of Hong Kong since 2011. Janice has finished her MPhil research of the visual culture and the embodiment of eye in interactive installations to explore self-revealing interaction of the spectators. Her master studies have resulted in several conference presentations and conference publication. Janice now is a Ph.D. student in Humanities (Interdisciplinary Studies) at Concordia University. Under the supervision of Dr. David Jhave Johnston, Janice continues to pursue in research-creation with an interest in the notion of self in media art.

She went to Linfiled College in the U.S. for an exchange program in 2013 to develop her installation art and received the Dean's List Honours. In 2016, she was an artist-in-residence at Red Gate Gallery, Beijing.
Angela Yuen’s art practise focus on urban culture; she looks to explore the correlation between urban development and city value via installation and photography. As the city develops, it alters people’s values and culture in each era. For instance: Hong Kong's value changes from “Tous pour un, un pour tous” (One for all, all for one), to “Minding only our own business”. Though it is inevitable that values of people or city change as time goes by, she hopes to record and express what she have witnessed and adored via installation and photography.

He is a painter who is interested in exploring complex emotional sediments embodied in local histories, memories and anecdote stories. His works have been exhibited in Hong Kong, Mainland China, New York and Australia.
In-situ is a year-round artist residency in the heart of Hong Kong that fosters international exchange through open call applications.
In-situ is Latin for "in place". Our aim is to support artists with an experimental art practice. We are less focused on the final outcome, but rather, on the process of making, and of discovery. We also don’t ask for detailed project proposals, budgets, or schedules during the application process because we believe projects and ideas should be informed after spending time here, "in-situ".
