David Khang

Biography: 

David Khang is a visual, performance, and biological artist whose practice is informed by education in psychology, theology, dentistry, and law. Khang selectively imbeds these disciplinary codes into his work, to compose an interdisciplinary language that materializes in visual, textual, and spoken forms. In performing, Khang often embodies these languages to interrogate social constructions – of gender, race, and interspecies relations – that are present within dominant historic narratives and in contemporary culture. By strategically employing non-native languages and code switching, Khang produces divergent, dissonant, and hyperbolic readings that re-imagine the poetic and the political.
