LEE Kai Chung performs research on historical events, political systems, and ideology. His work addresses the lack of proper governance over the records and pending legislation for Archives Law. Through performance, documentation, and installation, Lee considers the individual gesture as a form of political and artistic transgression, which resonates with existing narratives of history.
Lee’s ongoing research project Archive of the People addresses the political standing of documents and archives in the social setting. In 2016, Lee established collective “Archive of the People”, which serves as an extension of his personal research to collaborative projects, education and publications.
在李氏的長期研究項目 “人人檔案”，他跟不同的政府機構展開對話與協商，以探討歷史檔案在社會政治架構上的狀況；他於2016年正式成立獨立團體「人人檔案」(Archive of the People)，把歷史和檔案議題的創作延伸到合作企劃、教育與出版。

Vicky (or Vi, in Vietnamese), born in Saigon, is a media artist with the focus on both still and moving images. She uses art as a response along her life journey. Vicky works with stories and images as a form of historic preservation, archival, and investigation. She’s interested in the politics of urban planning, national territory and the their relationship with the human flow, aka, exodus. She considers herself as an activist, using videography to expose violence and absurdity; and using books as a tool for social-reconstruction. She’s been translating for a samizdat style publishing house based in Saigon, including monographs about Sino-Vietnamese relationship, Shooting an Elephant (George Orwell), Politics and English language (George Orwell), etc. Neither a communist nor an anarchist, but she can tolerate both of them to a certain extent.
Vicky now works as an independent researcher and curator in Saigon.
