Video works based on actual nightmares the artist had in 2011.
VIENNE CHAN was born in Hong Kong and studied the philosophy of religion in Canada. In 2007, she began making experimental videos independently. Marked by a personal approach that often inflects an intimate relationship with the subject matter, Vienne’s work has been shown extensively in new media art festivals, such as Les Instants Video (Marseille), Festival Images Contre Nature (Marseille), Re:New Festival (Copenhagen) and Kunstfilmtag (Düsseldorf). Her works have appeared in publications such as Bref Magazine (France) and The Future of Art in the Post-Digital Age (University of Chicago Press). In 2010, she was awarded a Pépinières européenes pour jeunes artistes residency, which was hosted at Clube Portugues de Artes e Ideias, and Plataforma Revolver in Lisbon, Portugal.
