Pearlyn Lii

JO-HS Residency March 2022

Pearlyn Lii is an artist from Hong Kong whose work examines identity narratives and archetypes. Her work weaves lived experience with the surreal, capturing the transient nature of the self through avatar, persona, mythology, and magical realism, confronting female archetypes through physical and sensory experiences. Lii’s cross-disciplinary practice exists across installation, performance, and code-based media. Her work has been recognized by Art in America, Dezeen, Vogue Italia, Wallpaper*, Forbes,, and the Society for Experiential Graphic Design (SEGD). Lii is an alumna of New Museum's incubator NEW INC, under the Art+Code track supported by Rhizome, and currently an artist-in-residence at JO-HS. She is the founder of nonstudio, her studio practice based out of New York.
