Pei-Hsuan Wang received her BA from Macalester College, MN and her MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art, MI, USA.
Her practice reflects on the intricate ties between private experiences and the established narrative set in a world characterized by rapid transnational movement. She is interested in territories where ideas of portraiture, landscape, and migrating bodies converge. Through object construction, material and (moving) image manipulation, processes of des- and re-assemblement, and orchestrating things’ relationships in space, she imagines poetic scenarios in which unique constellations of logic and storylines push and pull against one another, gradually forming shifting identities of their own.
Wang lives and works between Asia and the United States. She was resident at International Studio and Curatorial Program (iscp) in New York and Asia Culture Center in Gwangju, South Korea, 2018. She will be a guest resident at the Rijksakademie, Amsterdam in 2019.
