Through visual work and performance, Lulu Wang’s practice explores the body as a vessel and a shifting space that forms the shape of human identity.
Incorporating AI technologies, dance and posthumanist narratives, she uses abstract visual language and character to translate the symbiotic connections between emotional worlds and their physical embodiment, reflecting the reality and beauty of imperfection within humanity.
