Born in 1980 in Zhejiang, China, lives and works in Beijing. As one of the artists representing the “after 80” generation born after China’s one-child policy and other political reforms, his work, incorporating mainly photography and LEDs, explores the gap between the fantasy and reality of Chinese society formed in the conditions of dramatic economic growth and an unprecedented boom in investment in real estate. Chen sets out to locate the viewpoints of individuals members of society and to offer an objective and sharp questioning of the relationship between the individual and social realms.
