Qingyang Chen

Qingyang Chen, who was born in 1995 at Ningbo of China, is a photographer and video artist based in Shanghai and London. Her practice tries to establish a personal language to communicate her emotions. Most of her work is self-portraits and self-performance which give the viewer ways to relate to the images in her body of work through their own subjective experience. 

“Touching evokes closeness and intimacy more than any other sensation because you MUST connect and there’s a flow between the two surfaces — as in my chase after fingertips and skin, to and fro. And this feeling is very private and real — fingers feeling the skin, its temperature, and its humidity — a lived experience. At the same time, the understanding of the state of the objects is more like a mental feeling. This is more of a psychological perception and impression; when we touch something, there is an imaginary, ambiguous space, and this sense of uncertainty is connected to our experience and memory, which is a new way to think about what we see and how we feel.
