Statement

Through my work I strive to articulate overlapping systems, hierarchical structures, and the polarity of power dynamics. I am always searching to understand the movement of power by tracing the violence that occurs when power structures collide. I draw inspiration from sources such as geopolitics, history, pop culture, ecology, and parapsychology. I often overlap different methodologies from multiple disciplines until new perspectives emerge, so that I can construct visual poetries to reveal and examine the systematic violence of our time. 

Originally born in Hsin Chu, Taiwan, Hao Ni is an artist currently living and working Brooklyn, NY. Hao Ni received his BFA in 2011 from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and received his MFA from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2014. Ni’s work has been exhibited at the Granoff Center of Art, Yellow Peril Gallery in Providence, RI, Queens museum in NYC, Scope Art Fair in Miami and New Bedford Art Mseum in MA . In 2011 Ni was awarded the Edward Ryerson Fellowship at the SAIC, in 2012 the Presidential Scholarship from RISD, and in 2014 Ni was selected to be a candidate at the Taipei Arts Award at the Taipei Fine Arts Museum.
