Lulu Wang is a Chinese multidisciplinary artist, focusing on performances and engaging with traces of the body in motion. Wang explores and develops her understanding of symbiotic relationships between and betwixt the familiar and the alien. Her “research in action” engages with the Chinese cosmology of Yin Yang, seeking the balance between human and non-human. Her practice, especially that of trance-like trace-making, further articulates her understanding of the physical body through live performances and videos.
In her current work Yin-mian, Wang extends trace works back to performance narrative to open up the boundary between the two forms of her practice, discussing inner and relative harmony of individuals.
Wang was born in Shanghai and now living and working in London, a founding member of Diasporas Now performance art platform
