Si Chen is an artist who works between London, Toronto and Beijing. She graduated from Ontario College of Art and Design University in Canada and is currently studying Jewellery & Metal at the Royal College of Art in the UK.
Si Chen's work explores the underlying logic of people's behaviour and the embodiment of human nature in contemporary society. She believes in the commonality of people and uses herself as an observational sample in a secular society, looking at herself from a third-person perspective.
Her installations are primarily participative and experimental, and she believes that the narrative of the work can be completed only by incorporating the audience's behaviour as material into the artwork. She argues that in an age saturated by visual noise, only artworks that affect the viewer experientially can evoke people's emotions and senses, provoking more profound thoughts and resonance.
