Soojin Chang (b. 1991, unceded territory of the Ramaytush Ohlone) is a Korean non-binary performance artist, filmmaker, ritual practitioner, and researcher who lives in Glasgow and works internationally. Using their body as technology to transmute in/visibility, Chang’s practice reflects on contemporary ethics, colonial inheritance, and trans-species reliances. They use phenomenology and animism as methods to experience matrixial glitches in thinghood/subjectivity, art/life, and the afterlife.
