Artist-in-Residence: Wang Hong-Kai

Wang Hong-Kai is a Taiwanese artist who works with sound as a conceptual means to investigate social relations and the construction of new social space, focused on a collaborative and process-driven approach to production. Her work spans interventions, performance, workshops, publication and installations, in a networked excavation of social memory embedded in listening and sound as forms of perceptual, cognitive organization and of political questions of relation and harmony.
