Uta Guan Hyë
Born in China, currently residing and creating in Ardèche, France.
Uta (guan) received theatrical education in China and conducted research and creative work involving experimentation with visual arts and documentary filmmaking in Paris and Ardèche. She is also the co-founder of XYÄ Edition © (2023), a variable geometry press entity geared towards writing, sound phenomenon and inner engineering technologies of Asian and the Caribbean.
Transcends her own confines by engaging with various dimensions, ecosystems, and events. She navigates between the tangible world and the foundational realm, establishing an intimate nexus through writing, actions, and audio-visually elements characterized by an “infinite spatiotemporal configuration.” Her pursuit is to encapsulate the elusive, unstable, and ever-shifting traces of reality, often imbued with allegorical, and ritualistic qualities.
