Pei-Hsuan Wang
1987, TW

Pei-Hsuan Wang’s practice is rooted in ways of engaging with her identity, much of which is shaped by the artist and her family's diasporic migration from Taiwan to the US. Folklore, family history, bio(mytho)graphical narratives and geopolitical musings are interwoven in her work, which primarily takes the form of sculpture, installation, drawing, and video.

The artist’s recent projects are tributes and prayers to her kinship. Her niece Iris, a first-generation Taiwanese American, has inspired a body of work that imagines racial and cultural hybridity alongside various archetypes in nature and in myths. Animal presences become a kind of guardian and portal, giving form to the inner experience.
