Wang Tuo wins 2023 Sigg Prize

Wang Tuo (b. 1984, Jilin) is based in Beijing. Working with various mediums including moving image, painting, and performance, Wang interweaves historical archives, mythology, and fiction into speculative narratives that blur the boundaries between time and space, reality and imagination.

His practice is a powerful examination of modern Chinese and East Asian history, often exposing the underlying forces within society and disentangling the collective unconsciousness and historical traumas.

Wang has had recent solo exhibitions at UCCA Center for Contemporary Art and Taikang Space in Beijing, and Present Company in New York. His works have been selected for recent group exhibitions in the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Seoul; Staatliche Kunsthalle Baden-Baden, Germany; Queens Museum, New York; Power Station of Art, Shanghai; and Times Museum, Guangzhou. In 2018, he was the winner of the Three Shadows Photography Award and the recipient of the Outstanding Art Exploration Award at the Beijing International Short Film Festival. He received the Youth Contemporary Art Wuzhen Award in 2019 and was awarded a research residency at KADIST San Francisco as part of the OCAT x KADIST Media Artist Prize 2020. Wang was the winner of the Sigg Prize in 2023.
