Chun Hua Catherine Dong
Chun Hua Catherine Dong’s practice is based in performance art, photography, video, AR and VR. Body is political. Working within the gap between body as image and body as experienced reality, Dong uses the body—often her/their own body— as a visual territory in her/their work and a primary material to activate social commentary on gender, identity, and immigration, asking what it means to be a citizen of the world today. Dong currently explores the subtle boundaries between art and technology.
Chun Hua Catherine Dong has exhibited at Manif d’Art – The Quebec City Biennial, International Digital Art Biennial; The International Digital Art Biennial, Montreal; and Art Gallery of Hamilton, Ontario, among others.

Lotte Nielsen’s projects document the living conditions of LGBT people, particularly youths ‘in a unique aesthetic language developed through years of working within the art film genre’. Through an artistic and social policy lens, she aims to facilitate the collection, study, and dispersion of information about the ‘lived experience’ of this demographic. The artist describes her goal as to “contribute to the empowerment of this group of people, who for various social, political and economic reasons are often marginalized or vulnerable”.
Lotte Nielsen has exhibited at The Nikolaj Contemporary Art Center, Copenhagen; Kunstforeningen GL STRAND, Copenhagen; and Kunsten Museum of Modern Art Aalborg, among others.
