Li Shuang


    Li Shuang (b.1990, Wuyi Mountains, China) currently lives and works in Berlin, Germany and Geneva, Switzerland. She received her MA in Media Studies from New York University in 2014.

    Situated in globalized communication systems and inspired by various localities and uneven information flows, Li Shuang’s work, which encompass performance, interactive websites, sculpture and moving image installations, studies various mediums composing the contemporary digital landscape. Crucial to this practice is the interaction between the medium and its users as well as amongst the mediums themselves. These diverse forms of intimacy form a motif that runs through the artist’s practice, as she explores how various forms of technology bring us into contact, and how they form part of a neoliberal apparatus that regulates the body and desire. Yet her focus is not limited to the virtual, the material lives of those digital landscapes are also included, such as the infrastructure and logistics systems that support it, and more importantly, the cracks in between.
