ABOUT CONGCONG WU
As an international young artist who has studied in China, Australia, the UK and the U.S., Congcong Wu works with ideas of multiculturalism, scale and dimension, qualities of emotion, the experience of ageing, a degree of absurdity, and the overlooked aspects of everyday life. Her art practice embodies multiple forms of media including drawing, painting, print, sculpture, installation and digital media.
Congcong is currently working with ceramics and vegetables to experiment through improvising with unexpected combinations such as clay and aubergine. At the moment, this is producing small scale humorous sculptures made from aubergine flesh: a pumpkin, a christmas tree, twisting forms and so on. The aim is to have fun with different ways of comprehending the materials, to “misunderstand” them and turn them towards unexpected results. Ultimately, the idea is to work at a much larger scale, after many more experiments.
Feel free to contact her, to give her some comments, to discuss the idea of her artworks or to share your artworks with her. :)
