Yu Shuk Pui Bobby (余淑培)is an Oslo-based Hong Kong visual artist who makes conceptual artworks, sculptures, and performances. Habitually uses the body as a medium, by creating situations and breaking the passivity of the spectator. In the past three years, she has sustained a preoccupation with sexual politics and female exploitation. Annoyed and amused with the incessant commodification of women in media, culture and everyday life, seek to impart an aspect of subjectivity to the female object. She often changes, transforms the roles / identities/public appearance in her real life. Her works act like simple "games" - simultaneously outlining complicated interpersonal relationships in novel ways.
Bobby received a BA from Hong Kong Baptist University, recently studying MFA at Oslo National Academy of the Arts. She has completed several residencies at 3331 Art Chiyoda (Tokyo), 435 Art Studio(Taiwan) , Athena Standard Residency(Athens) and Listhus Space (Iceland).
