Performance and the Editing of Representation

24 Jan 2022

Time:8:20pm - 9:30pm


Online via Zoom

You are cordially invited to attend the talk “Performance and the Editing Representation” organized by MA in Cultural Management Programme. In the talk, Isaac Chong Wai presents his current projects and artistic practice focusing on how performance challenges our understanding of images and bodily movements through the "editing" or synthesis of social, cultural, and political representations. 



ISAAC CHONG WAI is a Berlin-based artist from Hong Kong. He works across a range of media, comprising performance, sculpture, video, painting, and photography. His practice unfolds the struggle of powerlessness, precariousness, and structural violence in the social and political spheres and engages with transnational collective memory and woundedness. Influenced by personal and international phenomena, he deals with topics of collectivism and individualism, geopolitics, identity politics, LGBTQ, power relations and decentralization, social movements, and commemoration in public space. He had solo exhibitions at Bilsart (2021); Blindspot Gallery, Hong Kong (2019); Zilberman, Berlin (2019); Kunstraum München, Munich (2018); Goethe Institut, Hong Kong (2018); Bauhaus Museum, Weimar (2016). His work has been shown at National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Seoul, Innsbruck Biennial and IFFR, Rotterdam (2020); Museum of Contemporary Art in Taipei and Guangdong Times Museum in Guangzhou (2019); M+ Museum and Para Site in Hong Kong and Times Art Center Berlin (2018); Stiftung Brandenburger Tor and Haus der Kulturen der Welt in Berlin (2017); Deutsche Künstlerbund, Berlin and Gwangju Media Art Festival (2016); Kunstfest Weimar and Macura Museum, Serbia (2015); Moscow Biennale for Young Art in Museum of Moscow (2014). He graduated from the Academy of Visual Arts at Hong Kong Baptist University with a BA in Visual Arts and Bauhaus-Universität in Weimar, Germany, with a MFA in Public Art and New Artistic Strategies.
