    Images appearing and disappearing are central to Feng Chen's work – and, as a result, so is the factor of time. In his videos, frames alternate in a continuous loop. He points his camera at the things that constitute life – people and events – but by folding and layering their appearance he translates them into something confusing.

    Feng questions the manipulative power of media. He takes cameras apart and reconstructs them, altering the way they operate and represent the world. He dissects the synchronization between visuals and audio, inserting a wedge between the different senses, leading us to question which sense we should trust. In the end, the truth may very well lie halfway.

    Feng Chen was born in 1986 in Wuhan, China. Graduated from the Department of New Media Art of the China Academy of Art in 2009, he joined a two-year program at the Rijksakademie in the Netherlands as artist-in-residence from 2014 to 2015. He now works and lives in Amsterdam and Hangzhou. Feng's works have been exhibited internationally and are included in a number of institutional collections, including the White Rabbit Contemporary Art Collection in Australia, the China Art Museum and the Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten.
