Isaac Chong Wai Biography

Isaac Chong Wai (b. 1990, China) works across a range of media, including live performance, video, photography, and site-specific installation, and considers the interplay between the collective and the individual, the politics of time and space, and real and imagined futures. His works often engage with other performers with whom Chong performs, to allow for further interrogation of notions of the social and unified body. He works and lives in Berlin and Hong Kong.
