This creative unit is made up by Philip Lau, the father, Grace Kwok, the mother and their daughter, Lau Ying Ying.
Since they met, the couple has been creating works reflecting their worldview and the birth of their daughter, now aged 7, certainly changed the way they see the world, leading to their child innocence-inspired creations.
Emulating their own simple lifestyle, Cowrice was jointly created by Philip Lau and Grace Kwok in 2003, with a focus on ‘silly’ themes, and using photos, texts, video, illustration and handicrafts. The work gives off a peaceful feel, expressing the authors’ weariness of modern society. Ying Ying was born in 2007 and they keep creating with her around, discovering through the child’s eyes a wonderful world amid the dull routines.
