Min Wong

Min's sculpture and installation practice examines metaphysical and cultural esoterica of 1970’s countercultures, ‘New Age’ spirituality and recent renewed interest towards self-help and therapeutic culture. Her installations use strategies of appropriation, corporate branding techniques and nomadic meanings that are contingent and subject to the contemporary dilemma of spirituality. 

Min’s practice explores utopias and esoteric practices to reimagine a renewal of connection between nature, community and spirituality in coexistence. By looking back to past and present spiritual movements, Min’s installations investigate illusory hopes, desire, failure and seeks to remodel speculative worlds as possible futures within the contemporary dystopic. 

Min Wong has participated in international residencies in Spain, China and Los Angeles and recently exhibited at Housemuseum Galleries, Newcastle Regional Gallery, Verge Gallery, Hugo Michell Gallery and FirstDraft. Min has exhibited in prizes such as Churchie Emerging Art Prize and the Woollahra Small Sculpture Prize and in 2019 was the recipient of the Sculpture prize for the Ghost Fisher Art Award Prize. Min recently exhibited in the Adelaide Biennal of Australian Art in 2022.
