He Zike is an artist. Her works present personal and temporal perception in the flow of information and the technological environment, which may allude to malfunctions, disruptions, and catastrophes that lie behind the seemly well-ordered surface. Her recent projects are often expanded and developed from specific databases, material repositories, as well as personal and collective memory, examining daily lives in the spheres of infrastructure, deep time, electronics, artificial intelligence, and storage medium. Walking on the edges of different frames, the narrative approach often takes the central place. Most of her works take the form of video, writing, installation, and computer programs.
She will participate in the residency program of Pro Helvetia, the Swiss Arts Council in 2023, and she is supported by the 5th VH Award of Hyundai Motor Group as one of the five finalists. From 2021, She co-initiated the interdisciplinary project “Under the Cloud” which visits and studies the technological infrastructure in Southwest China.
Her main exhibitions include the solo show The Hidden Layer (Shunluck Space, Guangzhou, 2021), and group shows
