1984 Born in Taipei, Taiwan, now lives and works in Antwerp, Belgium.

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


Ming-Miao's practice is focused on the 'fluidity' between materiality, corporeality and meaning-making. She obscures the borders between the body and object, human and non-human, sexuality and reproduction. She specialises in porcelain slip casting, mould making and sculpturing porcelain in subtle details with her meaning-making practices. Her Eastern root also makes her art challenge the Western thoughts of dualism and categorisation, thinking of the entangled relations of natural and artificial, biological and cultural to interrogate sexualisation from reification (objectification and dehumanisation) in the anthropocentric world.  

In her works, she plays similarities and reinvents metaphors between the given meanings, symbols, shapes, and associations by casting things from nature, daily life, and the human body parts. She reinterprets those elements which are referring to sex, reproduction, and sensuality to reconstruct her artworks by connecting different elements that link to ideas and imagination of transforming hybridity. The relational thoughts of the earthen materials of the interrelated bodies of humans and non-humans expand her interpretation of the all-things-connected assemblage of various vital cycles. Accordingly, she creates an uncanny surrealistic symbiosis by using delicate and fragile porcelain material to interpret the nuances of recreating meanings hidden in details between being and becoming to intrigue the viewers' wonder.

Her artwork has been selected for several international expos in Belgium, France, Germany, Portugal, Finland, and Lithuania, she also participated in international ceramic symposiums in Lithuania.
