Canal Cheong-Jagerroos (b.1968) is a Chinese contemporary visual artist who grew up in an artistic family in Macau. She lives and works between Helsinki, Nice and Berlin.

For the last 25 years Canal has worked and lived in numerous countries. From Asia to Europe and Africa before settling in Finland with her family. As a result, the experience of  living in culturally diverse cities and countries has influenced her work greatly. Therefore, whether as consciously or subconsciously, these exceptional cultural experiences have shaped Canal’s later works. Canal has discovered that walking the line between the east and west, facing different cultures, can be both constructive and destructive, but always inspirational.

During the 55th Venice Biennale in 2013 Canal Cheong-Jagerroos exhibited her work. This art exhibition was called ’Time.Space.Existence’  and took place in the Palazzo Bembo. Please see the introduction clip below.

Canal is also the co-founder of the ongoing art project ‘Blue and Red’. This body of work will be showing in numerous museums in China and Finland from 2018 – 2020.
