Wrong Places Project
 
David Khang 
 
Wrong Places Project (2007-2018) is a series of site-specific and site-responsive public performances staged at various international sites – Nicosia (Cyprus), Santiago (Chile), Mexico City (Mexico), Edmonton, Montréal, and Toronto (Canada). At each site, the process begins with research into a memorable geopolitical history associated with the particular place and/or time. Then seemingly unrelated and disparate political events are juxtaposed (for instance, the division of Korea and the division of Cyprus), and remixed, not only cross-culturally but also linguistically. As an element of the performance, an iconic public speech or text associated with the event(s) is woven together and recited in multiple languages, including languages foreign to the audience immediately present.
 
Notes on contributor
  
David Khang’s visual, performance, and biological art practice is informed by interdisciplinary education. Through performance Khang selectively embodies disciplinary languages to interrogate social constructions of gender, race, and interspecies relations. He often employs non-native languages, to produce dissonant readings that re-imagine the poetic and the political. Khang received his BSc and DDS from the University of Toronto, BFA from Emily Carr Institute of Art + Design, and MFA with Critical Theory Emphasis from UC Irvine. Khang is currently completing his JD at the University of British Columbia Faculty of Law. Khang was born in Seoul, grew up in Toronto, and resides in Vancouver, where he divides his time between art, dentistry, and studying law. www.davidkhang.com
