Feng Chen (b. 1986, Wuhan, China) lives and works in Hangzhou, China. He creates videos, sculptures and hypnotic installations that investigate the synchronization between visuals and audio, inserting a wedge between different signals and leading us to question which of our senses we should ultimately trust. In his work, perception and reality interact with each other in labyrinthine ways, reclaiming that experience is the most essential and authentic part of existence and the ultimate nature of reality. He graduated from the Department of New Media Art of the China Academy of Art in 2009, and in 2014 he joined a two-year program at the Rijksakademie in Amsterdam (Netherlands). Feng's institutional collections include the White Rabbit Contemporary Art Collection (Sydney, Australia), the China Art Museum (Shanghai, China) and the Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten (Amsterdam, Netherlands). His work has been written about on Artforum, Randian, Art China, Flash Art among others. Feng Chen's works have been exhibited in recent solo and group exhibitions such as Moment by Moment at Capsule Shanghai in Shanghai, China (2019); The Darker Side of Light - Shadow at Annex Project Space by Fosun Art Foundation in Shanghai, China (2018) and As We May Think: Feedforward - The 6h Guangzhou Triennial 2018 at Guangdong Museum of Art in Guangzhou, China (2018).
