HAN QIN (b.1988, Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province, China)

While primarily focusing on digital art, Han’s work also extends to printmaking, video, installation and performance art. She earned her B.F.A. and M.F.A. in Printmaking from China Academy of Art (Hangzhou) and her M.F.A. in Digital Arts from Pratt Institute (New York) in 2017. Currently, she lives and works in New York and Hangzhou as an artist, and adjunct professor at Stony Brook University (New York) and China Academy of Art. Han’s work has continued to exhibit in the U.S. and China, including Long Island Biennial, The Heckscher Museum of Art, Huntington, New York (2016, 2018); Open books, Connecticut College, New London, Connecticut (2018); Forms and thoughts: The 8th New Star Art Award Shortlisted Artists' Group Exhibition 2017, Deji Art Museum, Nanjing, China, Han Qin: Where is Home, Long Island Museum, Stony Brook, New York (2017) and Changjiang International Photography & Video Biennale, Changjiang Museum of Contemporary Art, Chongqing, China (2017).

Han’s work flows from her experience of home and relocation. Moved from China at age 24, she feels the ambivalence between nostalgia and wistfulness of transition. This encouraged her to create this uncertainty and spectacular feeling throughout her work. Interested in the social phenomenon of groups and individuals move from places to places, she translated the moments of passing through, getting together, migrating and even conflicting.

韩沁(b. 1988, 中国浙江杭州)

韩沁的创作媒介跨越多媒体艺术、版画和表演艺术等。她在中国美术学院版画专业取得本科和硕士学位,毕业后赴美就读于普拉特艺术学院(Pratt Institute)数字艺术专业 ,并在2017年取得艺术硕士。 目前,她工作和创作于纽约和杭州,在纽约州立大学石溪分校(SUNY Stony Brook)教授数字艺术,并担任中国美术学院客座教授。她是纽约艺术基金会移民艺术家导师项目艺术家,作品曾在美国,中国等地广泛展出,近期展览包括:长岛双年展(赫克舍美术馆,亨廷顿,纽约州,2016/2018);开放的书页(康涅狄克学院图书馆,新伦敦,康涅狄克州,2017);2017第八届新星星艺术奖展览(德基美术馆,中国南京,2017);长江国际影像双年展(重庆长江当代美术馆,2017);韩沁:何处是家(长岛博物馆,石溪,纽约州,2017)。

韩沁将她传统美学实践融入到数字艺术创作之中,作品呈现在多种材料上,包括版画、数字媒体、帆布丙烯、视频、装置等。韩沁的创作源自对家国和迁徙的经历。 24岁离开中国,她强烈地感受到乡愁与追求之间的矛盾。 这使她在整个创作中出现一种飘渺不定而波澜壮阔的视觉感受。她的作品对旅行意义、社会通行、人类迁徙等人们移动、变化的行为提出思考。 她将人群穿越空间,人流聚集,迁徙甚至相互冲突的形态变化转化成视觉画面、影像和装置。描述了人性的归属感和人口大迁徙的样貌,并将迁徙和栖息的社会动态艺术化、图案化。
