Lo Lai Lai Natalie was born in Hong Kong.She received her MFA from the Department of Fine Arts, The Chinese University of Hong Kong. Lai Lai is a former travel journalist. She is interested in the development of tourism and the construction of nature. She is a learner at the collective organic farm Sangwoodgoon (Hong Kong) where she also explores the lifestyle of ‘Half-Farming, Half-X’ – a practice that seeks alternatives and autonomy as an artist and Hong-Konger. Lai Lai founded the Slow-so TV channel, with a focus on food, farming, fermentation, slow-driving, surveillance, and meditation.
Recently, Lai Lai is especially interested in the mutual control and dependence of the emotion and desire found among human being and nature. She presented her solo exhibition in the Floating Projects Hong Kong (“Slow-So TV” -Ann Eilathan’s Gaze, 2016) and the Observation Society in Guangzhou, China ("Souvenir and Gift”, 2014) . Lai Lai joined the following projects in recent years: < The Fish Pond Sustainable Art Festival> (2018), <Talkover/Handover 2.0> (2017), < Oi! :Interlocutor ︱You Are Not Alone>(2017) and < HK FARMers’ Almanac>(2015).
 

勞麗麗生於香港,畢業於中文大學藝術碩士,她是一位「退役」旅遊記者,現專注於與旅遊及大自然生態有關的藝術創作。麗麗現時在生活館學習務農之餘並探索「半農半X」生活方式,這種生活實踐促使她對另類生活模式、以及作為一位香港人兼藝術創作者的自主性作出提問。她成立了漫慢電視,主要硏究課題跟食物、農耕、蘊釀、慢駛、監視、冥想等相關。

近日她對自然及人類間相互牽引、相互制衡的情緒及欲望深感興趣,她相信箇中的角力與矛盾更引人入勝,猶如深不見底的潭。她曾參加的個展包括香港據點.句點的”漫慢電視——安.伊莉亞森的凝視”(2016)和中國廣州觀察社的”紀念品與禮物”(2014)。 最近參與項目包括「魚塘源野藝術節」(2018)、「廿年回歸前後話Talkover/Handover 2.0」 (2017)、「油街實現即日放送項目:Interlocutor—我與你同在」(2017)、「香港農民曆 HK FARMers’Almanac」(2015)等
