Hui Ye (b. in Guangzhou, China) is an artist and composer based in Vienna. Her works use various media (semi documentary, video, sound installations, and live sound performance) to address questions relating to individual social identity and its entanglements with different cultural and political contexts. In her recent projects, the artist focuses on sociopolitical aspects of the act of listening in contemplation of exploring diverse correlations between sound and the different social phenomenon in contemporary societies.
Ye is laureate of the Kunsthalle Wien Prize 2018 and a nominee of Follow Fluxus Wiesbaden Grant 2020. Her compositions and sound pieces were released on diverse labels such as Syrphe, playreclabel and Col legno. Currently, she holds the fellowship of BS projects for sound art – a scholarship program for young artists hosted by the Kunsthochschule Braunschweig and the state of Lower Saxony.
