Kioto Aoki: Systems of Vision IV

FREE, $5+ suggested donation (100% goes to the artists)

Systems of Vision is a returning series curated by Kioto Aoki featuring artists approaching sound as image-makers. The featured artists work within a performative framework that considers sound as a responsive system of the photographic & cinematic image. Malleable cycles of image as sound and sound as image create redefine what it means to see sound and hear an image. Program 4 features Zhuoyun (Yun) Chen, Kishino Takagishi and Lan Xu.

This event is a part of the Experimental Sound Studio’s The Quarantine Concerts series.

Artist Bios

Zhuoyun (Yun) Chen is a multimedia artist and filmmaker. Her most recent work experiments with abstract shapes and artificial objects as means of exploration of the multiple aspects of sexuality, such as what constitutes androgyny. Yun received an M.F.A. in Film and Video from the California Institute of the Arts in 2017. She graduated with a B.F.A. from School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2012. Her works have been screened in festivals, galleries, and cinemas in the US and internationally. She lives and works in Los Angeles.



Kishino Takagishi is a multi-media artist originally from Evanston, Illinois. She received her BFA at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2020. While an undergrad, she specialized in creating experimental documentary and installation works; exploring concepts of memory, dreams, and psychological histories. In Kishino’s work, she utilizes the ambiguous, phantasmagorical nature of video in order to better interpret time and understand truth. Since graduating, Kishino is now based in Chicago where she does freelance videography for local artists and organizations such as Asian Improv aRts Midwest. Her work has been shown at SAIC’s annual Exfest, Zhou B Art Center, and as a visiting artist at universities such as Concordia University in Montreal and SAIC.



Lan Xu (Laziprofet) is a Brooklyn-based multimedia artist from China. She uses her lyrical narrative to cruise through human conditions in a synthetic format of poetry, digital/analogue images, conceptual DJ and installation. Her recent inspiration comes from embodied practices of dynamic equilibrium such as martial arts and techno rave, while she also loves investigating the spaciousness in meditation.
