Artist Profile: Casey Wei, Contemporary Arts

May 27, 2011

Congratulations to Casey Wei, one of this year’s recipients of a SSHRC Joseph-Armand Bombardier Canada Graduate Scholarship for her work in SFU’s School for the Contemporary Arts.

Casey Wei is an interdisciplinary artist working through a multi-genre approach of video, text, collage, installation, and music to explore the methods in which identity unfolds as a process of consuming other identities. She often places herself in the work as a performer and/or through diaristic means, weaving together a multiplicity of truths to destabilize any univocal understanding (and therefore complacency) of the art object. She is currently working on her thesis project tentatively titled, Murky Colors, a feature length experimental video/film.

Recent exhibitions include The Dark Arts: SFU MFA Spring Review, and I Could Be Wrong at the Audain Gallery. Other recent works include a performance of a collaged-monologue at Emily Carr's Student Symposium: Liminal Positions in 2011, and "White Light," a short story published in inter/tidal.iv, a literary journal.
