Abstract

The London-based multimedia artist Lisa Chang Lee, born in Beijing, China, is a representative example of exploring alternative identification in the context of the global health and environmental crisis. The conversation focuses on her artistic experiments with algorithms and digital technologies to transcend established norms of ‘Chineseness’ culturally and artistically. Gao Shiyu will investigate Lee’s projects to question the binary distinctions between humans and non-humans, nature and culture, the East and the West. The discussion intends to show a shift in the new generation of diasporic Chinese artists’ creative practices and challenge the tendency in contemporary Chinese art criticism that locates these works in large-scale, systemic and political ways.
