Huanzhe Hu completed her MFA in Digital + Media from the Rhode Island School of Design, Providence, in 2023. She graduated with a BFA degree from the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beiing, China, majoring in Art and Technology and minoring in Photography. In 2018 and 2019, as an exchange student, she studied at the Parsons School of Design's Futures Studies and Speculative Design program as well as the Fine Art program at Tokyo University of the Arts. Her expansive curiosity and sensitivity drive her to seek free artistic expression, both in form and content. Through her multidisciplinary background, she explores installation, experimental film, photography, sound, and the connections between them. Hu embraces these toolkits to embody the intricate relationship between technology and fading spirituality in the modern era.
Her work has been exhibited as part of ‘It's Time to Reduce the Backlog’ at Latitude Gallery in New York, ‘Séance Fiction’ in the Pfizer building, New York, ‘Transitory Void’ at Cyberart Gallery in Boston, MA, and 'Resurrection’ in the Factory Gallery, London. She is the recipient of CSC (China Scholarship Council) Scholarship, Margot & Thomas Pritzker Scholarship, and RISD Graduate Fellowships.
My work stems from a simple wish: to revitalize the intangible, visualize the imperceptible, and give volume to the inaudible. In my interdisciplinary art practice, I make installations, experimental film, and photography to embody the intricate relationship between technology, mysticism and fading spirituality. I focus on non-human life and modalities of empathy to investigate the coevolution of objects, species, and space.
I have always thought of the world as something without a defined center. In my world there is not a single species or inner voice at the helm. My world is less anthropocentric. Part of making my perceived world is to highlight the imperceptible through a poetic lens. My current exploration with ice is an extension of my ongoing dialogue with this imperceptible world, a dialogue that revolves around the quiet, profound interconnectedness of all things.
