Adrian Wong (Los Angeles & Hong Kong)

Cosmic Physics

Wong has spent the bulk of the past decade working with a small army of Feng Shui practitioners, geomancers, energy manipulators, sound healers, and telepathic animal communicators, all in an attempt to gain insight into his sculptural practice. In his specially developed lecture-performance for FIELD MEETING, Wong reviewed his research and shared anecdotes from his forays into alternative modes of engaging space and form.

Adrian Wong was born and raised in Chicago but has lived in between Hong Kong and US since 2005. Originally trained in research psychology, he began making and exhibiting works in San Francisco while conducting research in developmental linguistics. He holds an MFA from Yale University; his works rely on research-based methods with his installations, videos, and sculptures drawing from varied subjects and explore the intricacies of his relationship to his environment (experientially, historically, culturally, and through the filter of fantastical or fictionalized narratives). These organic and open-ended artifacts of his process often involve a collaborative engagement with subjects. He has been exhibited at numerous art events and venues including the traveling exhibition A Journal of the Plague Year I, II, & III, A Passion for Creation for the Louis Vuitton Fondation pour la Création, Saatchi Gallery, the Internationale Kurzfilmtage Oberhausen, Bangkok Experimental Film Festival, Kunsthalle Wien, the M+ Museum (Hong Kong), Sifang Museum (Nanjing), Kadist Foundation (San Francisco), the Uli Sigg Collection (Lucerne), the DSL Foundation Collection (Paris), and the William Lim Collection (Hong Kong).
