Jingfang Hao & Lingjie Wang
b.1984 Artist CV
Jingfang Hao (1985, born in Shandong) & Lingjie Wang (1984, born in Shanghai), they are duo artists. They graduated with Bachelor of Engineering in Shanghai Maritime University in 2007 and with Master of Art by le Diplôme National Supérieur d’Expression Plastique (DNSEP) in École Supérieure d’Art de Lorraine in 2012. They currently work and live in Mulhouse (France) and Shanghai. The creation of the two artists focuses on subtle changes in nature, with the main media including installations and images. By using the principles of material science and engineering, the works present an exploration of the relationship between cognition, emotion and nature, and convey a metaphysical reflection of intertwined rationality and sensibility. The dual professional background of art and engineering effectively promotes their exploration of the ultimate commonality between material and the spiritual world. Their works have been widely shown at international art museums, galleries and institutions including Palais de Tokyo, The Pompidou Center. Their solo exhibitions include: COCOSMO ( Galerie Octave Cowbell, Metz, France, 2019), La lumière n’existe pas / Light does not exist (Galerie Anne-Sarah Bénichou, Paris, 2018), Jingfang Hao & Lingjie Wang (White Space Beijing, Beijing, 2017), This coming summer has already gone (MoCA Shanghai, Shanghai, 2016).
