Hui Ye was born in Canton, China. She currently lives and works as video and sound artist based in Vienna, Austria.
Her works span different media such as video and sound installation, composition and live sound performance, and often address questions with regard to individual social identity and its entanglements with different cultural and political contexts. Her research into socio-political aspects of sound and music culture opens new perspectives on the diverse correlations between sound and contemporary societies.

Her works have been shown internationally, including at Kunsthalle Wien, Künstlerhaus Wien, Kunstraum Niederösterreich, Krinzinger Projekte (Vienna, Austria); Ohrenhoch Sound Gallery (Berlin, Germany); WRO Media Arts Biennial 2017, 2019 (Wroclaw, Poland); am Art Space (Shanghai, China) and Times Museum (Guangzhou, China).
