Hong-Kai Wang, Music While We Work, 2011.Excerpt of multichannel sound and double-channel video installation.
Born in Huwei, Taiwan, Hong-Kai Wang is an artist and researcher based in Vienna and Taipei. She is a PhD in Practice candidate and part of the ‘Spaces of Commoning’ research project at Academy of Fine Arts Vienna as well as the international History from Below Network. Her interdisciplinary practice is driven by a preoccupation with listening as research methodology, mode of collaboration, and pedagogical tool. Spanning sound work, video installation, performance, workshop and publication, her works are consistently concerned with organization of sociality, disrupting accepted geopolitical chronologies, and complicating conception of knowledge.
