Zoe Li(Li Qijing)
Zoe Li is an interdisciplinary artist specializing in new media art, kinetic installations and interactive installations. She investigates the abstract roles of human beings in a technological world, exploring the position of “self” within a system, which might be its cultural and historical heritage, a virtual space, or the physical world. She presents these investigations in various forms: performance, video, installation, web-based media and interactive media. Her goal is to shift perspectives away from normality as well as to raise questions to the public. The viewer is confronted with questions regarding preconceived ideas and the superficial aesthetic we take for granted.
Born in China, Zoe studied at University of Edinburgh, UK and got her BFA at the school of the Art Institute of Chicago with a concentration on new media art. She obtained an MFA from Pratt Institute digital art program in 2020. She exhibited her project in venues such as Shenzhen Fine Art Institute, Shenzhen Art Museum, The Made in NY Media Center by IFP, NYC, Straight Through the Wall, NYC, Fake/Reality Daedalus Project Multimedia Art Festival, Mykonos, Greece, Latitude Gallery, NYC, Royal Society of American Art, NYC and 9th Conference on Computation, Communication, Aesthetics & X.
