Ada Xiaoyu Hao is an artist working and curating in performance. Currently, she is working on her practice-based PhD research project: Plastic Fantasies: Reconfigure Subjectivity As Embodied Avatars, at the University of Brighton. How to construct subjectivity on the threshold of becoming? Ada’s performances deterritorialise viewers with a non-dualistic reconfiguration among embodied subjects and alienated individuals by reimagining and resituating the embodied experience of “becoming” as a radical performance-based method that disrupts the existing knowledge of post-human subjectivity. As a curator in performance, Ada runs PAPRIKA Collective with such questions as: would it be possible for one to make an analogy between a site-specific performance space and a scientific lab? If possible, can we use any site-specific performance space as an inhabitant to purposely situate “becoming”? Most recently, Ada has presented the one-year project NAUT-ADA (2019) at the “Fiction as Method” symposium at Bath University.
