I was born in Hangzhou, China and I moved to Sydney, Australia by myself when I was
18. Nine years later, I visited New York City in 2013, and I have stayed there ever
since. A few of my current projects are JellØ, Todd Capp’s Mystery Train, Straw Pipes,
The Doilies, and my solo project Lullady.
I make paintings, collages, films, digital videos and installations, in all of which I am
aiming to explore the many possibilities that are either invisible or ignored. I am
especially interested in the process over the result, questions over answers, flaws over
perfection. I want to focus on performances which are spontaneous and interactive. I
conceive of my long-term project as the creation of a utopian zone, an instrument-asenvironment,
a musical-influenced structure, that is part sonic architecture and part
social sculpture, a combination of prepared instruments or found sonic objects that are
also interacting with projections & performance. Conceptually, I perceive it as a platform
in which to critique my social milieu, as well as to record and respond to my nightmares
and visions. I intend to create an alternative site where creativity and ideas can cross
boundaries so they can be exchanged and connected.
My visual work and performances have been exhibited or shown at Greene-Naftali
Gallery, David Zwirner Gallery, NYU, Tufts University, SUNY at Purchase, Children’s Museum of the Arts,
Columbus Theater (Providence), Here Theater, Knockdown Center, Knitting Factory,
Radiator Gallery, Harpy Gallery, CFCP Gallery, Secret Project Robot, Elsewhere, Trans
Pecos, Synesthesia, Sunview Luncheonette, the Abasement series at Max Fish,
Downtown Music Gallery, The Glove, and various other venues. I sometimes play secret
shows at public spaces in New York City.
