Sheryl Cheung works with sound, installation and performance to explore a material concept of life. Perceiving life as a force, a mobility that drives our innate persistence to live, Sheryl is especially interested in the potential of vulnerable, ambiguous, and internal efforts that lead us to deeper awareness of the nature of being.

Eventbrite - Music Hackspace Artist Talk & Performance: Sheryl Cheung

Through ongoing explorations of soundscape, energy fields, and research into ancient and contemporary discourses on natural life, Sheryl pursues projects that explore the space of sound as cosmological readings of today’s increasingly post-wilderness world.

Sheryl Cheung was raised in Taipei, New York, and Beijing. Her work has been shown at the Taipei Fine Art Museum, Taipei Contemporary Art Center, Lacking Sound Festival; Chronus Art Center, Shanghai; JOLT Arts Festival, and Jeju Art Museum, Korea.

This event is curated by Lucia H Chung (Happened) as part of her residency with Music Hackspace, which aims to promote and give visibility to artists from Taiwan working with sound. Throughout July, August and September, four Taiwanese artists chosen by Lucia will be taking up short term residencies at Music Hackspace and delivering workshops, artist talks and performances. Lucia’s residency will culminate with a final night of performances in late September.

Doors for this event will open at 18:30. The performance will begin at 19:00, followed by a talk and Q&A. Drinks will be available from the bar next to the entrance to the New Wing of Somerset House.

The venue is located on the ground floor of Somerset House and is fully wheelchair accessible with an accessible toilet. If you have any access requirements, please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate them.
