'OF OTHER BODIES' , Ada Wu
Ada Yueting Wu is an interdisciplinary artist working in sound, installation, and performance.
She creates happenings that interrogate the production of silence and truth within systems of control. Her practice arises from her family’s silence on generation trauma, the unseen workers that constructed her home city, and the control of language and movements throughout her childhood. Her practice critiques systems of control through negotiating authoritative truth with counter narratives, and unearthing conflicts and contradictions. In the past, Wu’s research investigated the history of totalitarian architectures and their manipulation of body movements. Her current research aims to examine sensations and physicalities of sounds through interferences, vibrations, bodies and spaces.
Going Forward is a rotational exhibition space and archive housing works of D+M students.
The exhibition will assemble digital, physical, and in-progress works that will live in the D+M front corridor.
In tandem with the corridor exhibition, Going Forward will also feature an archive website that will accumulate over the course of the semester. This navigable website can be accessed through the monitor display in the space.
