Donna Ong

"I promised myself as a child, never to forget what it felt like to be a child - to dream and invest in the imaginary, the fantastic, the impossible. My work is about trying to keep that promise.” Donna Ong

Donna Ong è un’artista che si occupa prevalentemente di installazioni. È conosciuta a livello internazionale per le sue opere che si dispiegano come delle narrazioni ambientali costruite attraverso l’assemblaggio di mobilio, oggetti ritrovati e vere e proprie opere d’arte.
