Born in York, England, Joshua Thomson is an artist, musician and curator currently living and working in Hong Kong.

Thomson's work explores the tension between truth and memory in the creation of personal histories and how these in turn inform received historical accounts.

Other key themes in Thomson's work include: human fallibility, the human pursuit of order, and in particular taxonomy, ethnography and musicology.

A broad aim within Thomson's practice is to examine universal themes and shared narratives creating an output that reflects this eclectic and ambitious remit.

Joshua Thomson is the founder of Hong Kong based record label Platinum Metres.
