1984 Born in Taipei, Taiwan, currently lives and works in Belgium. 

Visual artist mainly specializes in contemporary ceramics art, with earlier artistic development in contemporary jewellery and object art. 

STATEMENT

My practice is focused on the 'fluidity' between materiality and meaning-making in ceramic art. I characterized my artworks by a fluid, non-binary approach that obscures the borders between the body and object, human and non-human, sexuality and reproduction. In doing so, my meaning-making process derives from the entangled relations of natural and artificial, biological and cultural, questioning sexualization, objectification and dehumanization in the anthropocentric world.  

I play similarities and reinvents metaphors between the given meanings, symbols, shapes, and associations by casts of things from nature, daily life, and the human body parts. I reinterpret those elements which are referring to sex and gender, reproduction, birth, birth control and sensuality to reconstruct my artworks by connecting different elements that link to ideas and imagination of transforming hybridity. My approach is heading toward relational thoughts of the material agency of the interconnected bodies of humans and non-humans, which expands my interpretation of the all-things-connected assemblage of various vital cycles.

My pieces not only reflect the fragility of the body but also interrogate and demonstrate variable meanings of its biosocial complexities. By interacting between the radical thinking and cautious making processes as an ongoing questioning about the (re)presentation, evolution and the meaning of 'the body'. Accordingly, I create an uncanny surrealistic symbiosis by using delicate and fragile porcelain material to interpret the nuances of recreating meanings that are hidden in details between being and becoming to intrigue the viewers' wonder.
