Born in 1969 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Phillip Lai lives and works in London.

‘I’m really surprised and delighted to be asked to be involved in the second incarnation of The Hepworth Prize, especially with such amazing company. I hope the show that we will produce will celebrate some of the many very different mindsets and realities that sculptural practice is, and also reveal its unique focus and concentration.’
