Wwenen (b. Ontological Consciousness Awakening in 2019, Shanghai) is a mixed media artist with a background in fashion degrees at undergraduate level. Worked as a director, creative director, art director and stylist.
Their work stems from an exploration of the social construction of special family relationships and sexuality in the context of patriarchal East Asian societies, and an interest in the possibilities of the body part, influenced by pop culture to some extent. Usually based on moving images or installations and performances, the forms are inspired by situationism.
In their quest for self, they regard materiality as a reliable partner and respect them as individual ‘Living Body' to work with.
