About Us

Huang Guaier + Wang Runzhong are an artist duo based in New York City. Their work interrogates the ontological meaning of photography, as well as explores the possibilities of contemporary photography across the overlaps of multiple fields. They explore the cultural and political identities of Asians and Chinese in the world, and utilize them as mediations to discuss realms of language, knowledge and power structure within the current global context. Using various mediums including photography, video, performance, sculpture, book and digital art, and contextualizing from philosophical and political theories, their projects challenges the fundamental presumptions of photography and its apparatus, questions the increasingly ocular-centric and precarious society, and critiques the binary systems in the western academia.
