Li Shuang is an artist based in Yiwu, China. Graduated with an MA in media studies from New York University in 2014, she is most interested in the power of “medium as massage”.
Li Shuang has held solo exhibition at Open Forum, Berlin (2019), SLEEPCENTER, New York City (2018), and has shown works in Tai Kwun Contemporary, Hong Kong (2018), Centre Pompidou in collaboration with Mao Jihong Foundation, Chengdu (2018), Taikang Space, Beijing (2018), Flux Factory, New York (2017), N3 Gallery, Beijing (2017), We Won’t be Young Forever, curated by Biljana Ciric (2016), K11 chi art museum (2016), Lab 47, Beijing (2016), Oberlin College, Oberlin (2015) , Gu Cang Contemporary Center of Image, Lanzhou (2014) and etc. Her upcoming solo show will be held at Peres Projects, Berlin in 2020.
Engaging with uneven flows of circulation within globalized systems (Internet, international trades, online commerce, transportation, migration and etc.), Li’s work is situated amidst social and cultural productions, bringing attention to issues or directions that are otherwise overlooked.
The proposed work would combine installation, performance and video mapping to turn the snow-topped Jura Mountains into a portrait of a deceased friend.
