Shisi Huang is an interdisciplinary artist who works across the realms of site-specific spatial installation, interactive installation, photography, video arts and book arts. In her latest work, Huang, a Chinese immigrant who studied in the U.K. and now lives and works in San Francisco, reflects upon the idea of home and what it means to belong while existing between multiple places, spaces, and communities. Displaced Home is a collage of items collected from five cities in three countries during 56.5 hours on the way back to San Francisco from a trip to her parents’ home in Changde, China. As she pieces together this assortment of items--all representative of different layers of her identity--she notes, “I have three homes, ironically, I also belong fully to none.”

Shisi Huang earned her MFA in Studio Arts from San Francisco Art Institute (2016) and MA in Photography from Nottingham Trent University, UK (2012). She has exhibited worldwide in China, the United Kingdom, the United States, and Europe. Currently, Huang is a featured artist of Kinetech Arts and #* Collective in San Francisco and is also is a co-founder of 3 standard stoppage LLC. Huang is a Root Division Studio Artist and teaches in Root Division's Youth Education Program at Cesar Chavez Elementary. 

 

The Frank-Ratchye Studio Artist Project Space provides a gallery for Root Division artists to connect and engage in dialogue around the work being made on site, and to exhibit their art to the public. The Project Space is located on our rear mezzanine, and is free and open to the public during gallery hours in conjunction with the current exhibition. This space is made possible with the generous support of Ed Frank and Sarah Ratchye.
