About Pan Daijing

Pan Daijing (born in 1991) is an artist, musician and composer from Guiyang, China, who lives and works in Berlin. Her raw approach to composition and performance channels sound towards narrating a story via diverse formats: music releases, films, art performance and performative installations. Soul-baring utterances and sonic, aesthetic outbursts are the main tendons of her practice. She frequently uses improvisation, engaging with audiences on a deeply personal level to produce poetic and haunting performances that explore different psychological states.

Daijing has performed and exhibited in some of the most relevant institutions, nightclubs and festivals all over the world, including the Barbican Centre, London; Berghain, Berlin; Sonar, Barcelona; Unsound, Kraków; Elbphilharmonie, Hamburg; Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin and Berliner Festspiele. Recent projects include her upcoming premiere of “Tissues and The Absent Hour” at Tate Modern, London; “Tissues I: A Prologue”, commissioned by the Biennale de l'Image en Mouvement and presented at Sicli Pavilion, Geneva in 2018; “In Service of a Song”, a performative installation at Haus der Kulturen der Welt and installation at EDEN EDEN of Isabella Bortolozzi Galerie in 2018 and “Fist Piece”, a live audio-visual composition which premiered in Kraftwerk during Berlin Atonal in 2017. Her acclaimed debut album Lack was released on the Berlin PAN label in 2017.
