Ran HUANG (b.1982) lives and works in Beijing. 2004, he graduated from Birmingham Institue of Art and Design with a First Class BA(Hons) Fine Art degree. 2007, he gained his MFA Fine Art degree at Goldsmiths College, University of London. Huang was one of the 16 artists presented by European Media Artists in Residency Exchange (EMARE) 2009 programme, supported by European Culture Programme and Art Council England.

Huang Ran is the author of visionary videos in which sense of wonder and drama, frailty and a desire for absoluteness, ambiguity and inevitability coexist. The exasperated yet alluring iconography of his works draws the viewer right into the swirl of conflicting emotions in which one has the constant sensation that some marvellous tragedy is about to take place. The pathos that runs through the images of his videos, as in his recent piece Blithe Tragedy, is based on the deconstruction of reality, its transfiguration and transformation into a pantomime whose ephebic protagonists are suspended between their role as chosen victims and (un)conscious executioners. The aesthetic appeal conveyed by the perfect images of his work acts as a counterpoint to the shattered inner world of the characters constantly on the brink of the adyss of their emotions and fears.

Huang has participated in numerous group exhibitions including 7th Mercosur Biennial, Brazil (2009), .MOVE, Werkleitz, Germany (2009), Où va la vidéo 00.00.02, Fondazione March, Italy(2009).Solo exhibitions include Ran Huang, Nika Oblak & Primoz Novak, VIVID, UK (2009), Fake Action Truth, GEORGE POLKE, London, UK (2010).
