Vvzela Kook is a new media artist who mainly works in audiovisual mediums, including performance, theatre, computer graphics and drawing. Kook’s video works combine technology with her artistic practice to reproduce and convert urban cityscapes into an integrated virtual experience, guiding the audience on a cybernetic journey. The condensed textures in her works connect with multiple sensual levels in our perception and reintroduce the unexplored potential of video as a medium.The narrative plays an important role in her work, the transmedia storytelling is part of the artistic concept. Especially the mixing of delicate drawings, 3D printing and video game optics in her videos show the wide range of media and materials the artist uses to visually translate her research-based projects.

Kook has participated and shown her works in Kathmandu Triennial (2022), Para Site (2020), C-Lab Taipei (2019), MoCA Taipei (2019), Asia Society Hong Kong Centre (2019), Microwave International Media Festival in Hong Kong (2018, 2016), PuSh Performing Art Festival in Vancouver(2017), Centre for Heritage Arts and Textile (2016), K11 Shanghai (2016), Hong Kong Arts Festival (2015), and “89+”program (2012) co-curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist and Simon Castets.
