Dakota Guo (b. 1994, Taiyuan) is a Rotterdam-based Chinese artist. Reiterating cultural experiences of proto- or quasi-religious narratives, her practice-as-research is described as "pseudo-theory making" through performances, videos, installations, texts, and soundscapes. In her recent projects, she seeks ominous revelations of a "corpse-ghost" continuum, investigating the (cosmo-)necrological infrastructure of Han Chinese society, specifically the construction of its netherworld as a tangible reality. This speculative approach renders her peculiar obsession with ghostly matters and their materialization a post-secular revision of "haunting."
