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.

《蜜蜂》记录了这样一群人

当面对生命中的混乱、暴力、疏离与无可避免的失去时

  他们在自己的身体上留下痕迹,以此确认并保存诗意的心。
