Junny Yeung

Junny Yeung (Chun Au Yeung) is an artist from Hong Kong currently based in Tallinn. He received his MA in contemporary art from the Estonian Academy of Arts in 2022. In the same year he received the Young Sculptor Award by the Estonian Academy of Arts, the Outstanding Student Achievement in Contemporary Sculpture Award by the International Sculpture Center and the Young Artist Award at the TASE Graduation Show by the Estonian Academy of Arts. Chun’s practice mainly involves sculpture, installation, object and video, which are based on his observations on everyday life and intimate relation with the realities of nature, often speaking of memories, intimate situations and insecurity. His sensitively chosen figures evoke a sense of emotional longing and the feeling of time passing with no recourse.
