Born in San Francisco and working out of New England, Victoria Shen is a multimedia artist and musician whose visual work is positioned at the intersection of art history, pop culture, and identity politics. Through a process of visual exaggeration and effacement, her video work holds up a mirror to the absurd side of images we consume.
Shen's music/sound performance features analog modular synthesizers (Flower Electronics), contact microphones, and other hand-built electronics. Shen’s work is concerned with the spatiality/physicality of sound as a medium and explored the relationship between the human body with sound. Her approach to music is sculptural in both the shaping/texturing of acoustics and the design of the sound objects themselves.
Shen has performed solo across North America, Eastern Europe, and Japan as Victoria Shen and under the pseudonym evicshen and with the duo TRIM in North America and the UK.
