Pei-Hsuan Wang holds a BA from Macalester College, MN and an MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art, MI, USA.
Migration, imagination, and the self are at the core of Wang’s practice. Extracting remarkable moments of everyday reality, Wang reflects on the ties and discrepancies between private experiences and the greater narrative. Portraiture, landscape, and migrating bodies are key approaches adapted in Wang’s work. Through manipulating objects, images, material processes, and spaces, she creates poetic scenarios in which unique constellations of logic and storylines push and pull against one another, forming shifting identities of their own.
Wang lives and works between Asia and the United States. She was resident at International Studio & Curatorial Program, New York (2018), Asia Culture Center, Gwangju, Korea (2018), and guest resident at the Rijksakademie, Amsterdam, Netherlands (2019).
