Sharon Lee obtained her BA in Fine Arts from The Chinese University of Hong Kong and is currently an MFA degree candidate at the same university. 'Re' as her artistic strategy conceptually and technically: in the name of re-search and creation; of examining “disappearance” as an artistic means to challenge “disappearance” as a cultural concept; of re-garding the analog-digital hybrid of image construction; of re-sisting empty photography in the post-photography era. Lee's photography art experiments with photographic analogue processes and sculptural materials.

She participated in several art residencies in Germany and Taiwan in 2017 and 2018. She was awarded the “New Light Exhibition Scheme” by Lumenvisum in 2017 and the Winner of “WMA Masters Award 2018/19” with her work The Crescent Void in 2019. She was the recipient of the Cultural Exchange Arts Development Fund by Art Development Council, the Talent Development Scholarship 2019/20 (culture, arts & design) by HKSAR Government. The latest group exhibitions include WMA Annual Exhibition – Opportunity! at Hong Kong City Hall in 2019, Hong Kong International Photo Festival and Peer to Peer: UK/HK Online Festival in 2020, and Hi! Flora, Fauna the exhibition organised by APO at Hong Kong Zoological and Botanical Gardens in 2021.  
 

李卓媛畢業於香港中文大學,獲藝術學士學位,現正攻讀藝術碩士學位。以 RE(複/復/覆)作為她攝影藝術中的觀念與手法,對影像氾濫的「後影像」時代叩問,探討文化與歷史的表現與再現。作品以「過去末來式」探討歷史與記憶,消逝與依存。她建構出介乎菲林與數碼攝影之間的混合體,探索物料與影像之間的互換性。

2017年,獲光影作坊選拔參與「New Light—青年攝影創作系列」;2019年,憑作品《缺景》贏得「WMA大師攝影獎」。她曾於2017及2018年獲藝術發展局頒發「藝術發展基金(文化交流計劃)」到德國與台北參與藝術駐留計劃,並於2020年獲頒「香港特別行政區政府獎學基金-才藝發展獎學金」。最新的聯展包括:2019年在香港大會堂展出的「機遇!WMA 年度展覽」、2020年參與「香港國際攝影節」及「Peer to Peer: UK/HK」線上展覽、以及2021年由藝術推廣辦事處推出的「邂逅!市中森」藝術項目。
