Keng Chen, b. 1995 in Hangzhou (CN), lives and works in Hangzhou/Shanghai (CN)
Keng Chen's practice combines body-based performance art with video, installations, sound and other media. Her subject is everyday life and the communication of personal, present-day experiences. She takes up everyday questions and experiences in her performances and puts them into the focus of her work until it becomes a part of the everyday experience of the public. She is concerned with thematizing issues of individual identity and social experience in various cultural contexts.
Keng Chen studied performance and experimental art at the China Academy of Art, SIMA (School of Inter Media Arts). She has been a member of the TAI group since 2016.
Keng Chen was recommended as a participant in the Live Art Workshop at Partout by Zhao Chuan and is supported by Pro Helvetia Shanghai. For Acts of Transmission she collaborates with Dino Radoncic.
