HU Rui is a Los Angeles-based artist who works primarily with digitally generated image and written text. Looking at historical events, personal experiences and previous cultural productions as sources, he maintains a semi-fictional archive of texts, objects, and characters to which he finds an emotionally attachment. His work often stems from this personal archive and reconstructs certain elements in new conditions and timelines, attempting to test their possibilities in terms of narrative, meaning, and psychological effect.

Rui holds a Master of Fine Arts from the University of California, Los Angeles, a Bachelor of Fine Arts from New York University, and has studied literature and film. His work has been shown at venues including the International Film Festival Rotterdam, Netherlands; the Images Festival at the Art Gallery of Ontario, Canada; Skulpturenmuseum Glaskasten Marl, Germany; International Symposium on Electronic Art, Hong Kong; and the Australian Center for the Moving Image, Australia.


胡芮目前居住和工作于美国洛杉矶,主要以数字影像和文字形式进行创作。曾就读于厦门大学中文系和纽约大学电影系,2017年毕业于加州大学洛杉矶分校媒体艺术硕士项目。胡芮构建了一个半虚构档案,以历史事件、个人经历与其它文化作品为来源,将与之产生情感联系的言语、物件与角色进行整理与延伸。他的作品常源自这部私人档案,在新情境与时间线内重组特定的元素,以试验在叙事、涵义与心理效应方面的可能性。

胡芮作品曾展映的机构包括荷兰鹿特丹国际电影节(the International Film Festival Rotterdam, Netherlands)、加拿大安大略美术馆影像节(the Images Festival at the Art Gallery of Ontario, Canada)、德国马尔市玻璃房雕塑博物馆(Skulpturenmuseum Glaskasten Marl, Germany)、香港国际电子艺术研讨会(International Symposium on Electronic Art, Hong Kong)、澳大利亚移动影像中心(the Australian Center for the Moving Image, Australia)等。
