Guo-Youheng is an artist from Shijiazhuang. His works interrogate historical and social issues in different contexts, focusing on the development of consumer capitalism and digital technology. He excavates imaginative and fictionalized fragments from modern and contemporary history, employing technologies such as motion capture, artificial intelligence, and mechanical devices to utilize historical archives and guide present-day practices in diverse contexts. His aim is to challenge the awkward situation of the global South is compelled to contribute to the West. Particularly in the face of structural racial inequality and the fluctuating international status quo, he responds with a simple universalist stance, and an open-minded attitude.
