YILING HUNG, Netherlands
lecturer I researcher I scenographer I performer
is coming from the backgrounds of architecture, lighting design, and scenography. Most of her projects are small-scale interactive performances, through which she attempts to generate conversations with and among the spectators on societal issues. She wants to shorten the distance between artistic works and people. For her, art is not about aesthetic presentation, but about the impacts and relations which are generated through it.
Working as a performing artist and being a PhD candidate at the same time, her current practice and research can be roughly divided into two different yet inter-related directions: one is exploring the performativity in everyday environment. The other is, through her PhD research project, she is studying how a migrant perceives the new relocated environment and how the spatial experiences influence the formation of sense of belonging.
