Miao Hanqing (Megan)
寒青 (hán qīng)

Megan’s practice is multidisciplinary and process-orientated, often socially-engaged, collaborative and dialogical. Her process aims to articulate the ways in which people organise their memories, aspirations and beliefs within different types of community. Identifying patterns in which people think and behave within a group, her work challenges commonly held beliefs and points out discrepancies in a humorous manner. 

She is also an educator, civil servant, curator, occasional writer and a saikang warrior (translation: helpful person).
