Lisha Chen, born in Chongqing in 1996and obtained a master’s degree from the Art Institute of Chicago in 2021, now work and live in Los Angeles. Because of the broken family in her childhood and the experience of overseas
wandering when she grew up, her work is constantly reflecting on how the connection between people is constantly negated in “self-transcendence”, flowing and deforming like a liquid. Her works emphasize the connection between individual experience and abstract social systems. Her works often have the interdisciplinary characteristic of social sciences and are often presented in the form of video and performance.
