Heather Keung's artistic practice examines issues of identity, intimacy and physical experience through the use of video, installation and performance art. Inspired by repetitive daily actions and physical labour, her work looks at involuntary responses, habitual social behaviours and the training of the mind & body. Keung graduated from the OCAD University. Her works have been showcased in curated programs in across Canada, and internationally in cities such as San Francisco, Helsinki, Budapest, Hong Kong and Buenos Aries. She has participated in artist residencies at Videotage in Hong Kong and Western Front in Vancouver, and has participated in talks at Colour School, the Japan Foundation, and the University of Toronto. More recently she presented her work at A Space Gallery, the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art, and Le Labo in Toronto, Canada. Keung works on numerous creative projects with her partner Michael Connor in Toronto, Canada. In addition to her artistic practice, she has been an active contributor to the arts community in Canada through her work as the Artistic Director at the Toronto Reel Asian International Film Festival and as Technical Manager at Vtape. Currently Keung is the Executive Director at the Images Festival, the largest festival in North America for experimental and independent moving image culture.
