Hong Kong artist, Claudia Chanhoi, graduated from London College of Communication in 2013 where she was already strongly focused on the sexual objectification of women. After working as a designer, she returned to her personal practice through her Instagram account. Quickly, the social media platform censored her works showing female body parts even though the style was far from explicit. She then played with the boundaries of the censorship algorithm, adding flying. birds or skyscapes into the images, finding these details would keep the post from being deleted.
Claudia went on to question societal views of women’s bodies, where sexualization is openly abundant while nudity is taboo. Her practice became a process of reclaiming ownership of her own sexuality. Lighthearted and playful images with clean lines and candy colours, bare raw empowerment.
In 2020 宀 Gallery presents Claudia's seventh solo exhibition, Pat Pat. Claudia has exhibited in Hong Kong, Beijing, Tokyo, London, Chicago and Miami. Her past clients include Lush, Behind Bars, Everpress, Canvas Pocket Squares, Madlady and Playboy.
