Ge Tang majored in Drawing & Painting and On-Screen Media at OCAD University as an undergraduate. Due to her major, she is accustomed to creating works by taking oil paintings, films, sounds, installation, and their combined forms as media. She's an artist who is inclined to focus on female narrative and feminism. Because of her long experiences growing up in different cultures, she likes to pay attention to the environment she lives in her art practice. By observing the different forms of male-dominated society in different regions or environments as well as the issue of women’s identity in them, she creates works by combining research with practice.
During her study at RCA, she delves into the research on female narratives. Taking “Shentou Town” as a starting point, She studies the embodiment of women’s identity in the highly male-dominated areas under the background of fragmented rural economic development and population loss in China and analyzes the women’s identity in regions that are flooded with lots of fertility myths and beliefs in the folk.
