Wang Tuo

王拓

WANG Tuo (b. 1984, Changchun, China) employs various mediums and a process that combined interview, reality show and the theatre of absurd to construct a maze of melodrama. Through his performative manipulation on individuals’ lived experiences and intervention in intellectual legacies such as literature, film, theatre and art history, Wang’s practice attempts to examine the unreliable relationship between the contemporary human status, myth and cultural archive. In the self-referential environments that he constructs, dramatic, often humorous as well as absurd aspects of the concept of society are exposed. Wang’s practice also seeks to develop a discourse on how present ideology is derived from its historical context continues to adapt to changing condition. Wang Tuo was an Artist in Residence at the Queens Museum, New York from 2015 to 2017. He is the winner of the Three Shadows Photography Award 2018.

1984年生于吉林省长春市,2007年毕业于东北师范大学获生物学学士,2012年毕业于清华大学美术学院获绘画系硕士,2014年毕业于波士顿大学艺术学院获MFA。现工作生活于北京。王拓的艺术实践以影像、行为、绘画为主并涉及多种媒介,通过在预设情境下对他人真实生存经验以及文献行为化的介入,来揭示当代人类境遇与精神遗产之间不稳定的关系。2018年其作品《审问》获第十届三影堂摄影奖大奖。
