We are delighted to announce kurimanzutto's representation of the artist in Mexico and New York.
WangShui’s work explores divergent structures of perception. Through video, sculpture, painting, and installation, they examine the psychosomatic loops that form our experience of the world. The artist’s polyvocal practice seeks to integrate diverse personal experiences and research into trauma, architecture, and media.
A central theme in the work is liminality, and its radical potential as a form of resistance. WangShui often addresses the latent space of images and materials as a way to activate the hallucinatory states between detail and distance, transparency and opacity, knowing and unknowing.
WangShui earned BA’s in Art Practice and Social Anthropology from UC Berkeley and an MFA in Film/video from Milton Avery Graduate School of the Arts, Bard College. Their work has been exhibited at the 2022 Whitney Biennial, 2022 Biennale de Lyon, Hammer Museum, Hessel Museum, SculptureCenter, JULIA STOSCHEK COLLECTION, Tai Kwun Contemporary, The Shed, New York Film Festival, International Film Festival Rotterdam, and EMPAC.
In 2023, WangShui will have solo and group exhibitions in institutions such as Rockbund Museum, Shanghai, Schinkel Pavillion, Berlin and Haus Der Kunst, Munich, among others.
