Li Yilei

Visual/ Performance Artist

Li Yilei is a London-based conceptual artist working with sound, performance and multi-media installations.
Founder of NON DUAL collective.

Spanning across sound, performance, multi-media installations and moving image. Li’s works are developed through a primarily conceptual basis. The works are the manifestation of an inquiry into tropes of phenomena, existence, power dynamics, and the politics of sound and listening. She constantly examines the discriminatory perception of the world’s phenomena in its subtlest terms. Characterised by a replete of poeticism, lines are drawn across these seemingly disparate thoughts through a minimalistic approach.

As an experimentalist in the field of music, Li often creates quasi instrumental sculptures, further integrating sound art into fine art, blurring its boundaries. Using obscure instruments and field recordings, the sound works are carefully designed and produced, ranging from cinematic atmospheric music to noise. Li’s work has performed and exhibited throughout countries like China, London, Sweden, Norway and Austria. Her most recent performance was at Cafe Oto.
