Hai-Hsin Huang’s works explore images indicative of contemporary life. Particularly banal everyday life scenes that reveal an ambiguous atmosphere between humor and horror. Such as ordinary family photos, tourists at attractions and the routine disaster drills… Huang is interested in the ridiculousness, fear, absurdity and loneliness in society. To her, most aspects of life have the potential to be ridiculous, absurd, awkward, funny and meaningless all at once.
In “A Museum Show”, Huang focus on her visual experiences in the museums where she usually spends time in New York City. She explores the contemporary landscape that demonstrates the changing landscapes of our body and the experience of seeing in the digital age of consumerism.
