Born in Beijing, China, Zhe Chen is a photo-based artist currently based between Los Angeles and China.
Identifying the physical self-destruction of her subjects as an act of spiritual cleansing, Zhe Chen has been documenting
self-mortification of her own and others since 2007, while creating a series of projects focusing on gender consciousness,
identity confusion, post-traumatic stress disorder and memory.
Zhe Chen received her BFA from Art Center College Design and is the winner of 2011 Inge Morath Award, Three Shadows
Award and International Photography Award. Her work has been exhibited and published internationally and is included in
public and private collections.

「攝影師將自毀行為視為凈化精神的手段，這種抒情的表現手法使得原本就不簡單的主題變得爲更加複雜。」——Inge Morath Award頒獎辭
