Originally from China and currently residing in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, I explore concepts of body sovereignty, visibility, and well-being in the digital realm as an artist and researcher. These concepts have been deeply influenced by my own experiences working with queer feminist organization, and alternative space-making in mainland China and later in Europe which draw my attention to activist fatigue and trauma, specifically in relation to the complex interplay between the body, technology, and state control.
My artistic practice predominantly revolves around sound, video, installation, and performance, to unravel intricate connections between the body, somatic activism, and technology. My work serves as a form of expression, healing, and advocacy, as I strive to create spaces for dialogue, reflection, and transformative experiences.
I obtained a Master in Art Praxis from the Dutch Art Institute in 2022, and currently am part of the BAK Cell, Utrecht, in the Fellowship for Situated Practice 2023-2024. I am also a founding member of the queer feminist collective Q-Space in Beijing (established in 2016), a collective that I am still a key part of. In 2022, I became a member of Soupspoon collective based in Rotterdam, Soupspoon consists of Pitchaya Ngamcharoen, Raffia Li, Maoyi Qiu, Miyoung Chang, and Dakota Guo, attempts to cultivate a common, Asian contextualized space for the particularities that elude translation, [and] it aims to convene a generative forum of “minor gestures” and “micro politics.” .
