ZHUO QI

Born in Fuxin (China) in 1985. Currently lives and works in France.

Having worked in France since 2008, Zhuo Qi fuels his artistic practice with the daily experience of the semantic and linguistic miracles generated by cultural gap and its long history of misunderstandings. Through humor and ceramics, he confronts traditions and know-how. In his work, porcelain is both the medium and the object of an experimental “cuisine” characterized by the creation of objects involving foreign bodies immerged in incongruous, enigmatic, sometimes hostile, but always amusing environments.

Lives and works in the Paris, born  1985 China
