Born in the Chinese town of Qindao in 1954, artist Qin Yufen has spent the last 15 years living and working in Berlin, a cross-cultural biography that in many ways is reflected in her site-sensitive installation work. Combining western artistic techiniques with such symbolically eastern materials as bamboo, rice paper, and silk, Qin engages an ongoing dialogue between form and content, regionalism and internationalism, and East and West. At times serious, humorous, sublime, and simple, the aesthetics of her painterly sculptures have been compared with traditional Chinese poetry, especially in her use of metaphor.
