BIO



Jing He (1984, Kunming, China) holds a Master degree from Design Academy Eindhoven (NL),  a Bachelor degree from Gerrit Rietveld Academie(NL) and a Bachelor degree from Central Academy of Fine Art (CN).

Jing He’s interest in culture, politics and the history behind various daily objects, leads to imaginative visual representations involving various materials and mediums. During the creation of her works, she is open to collaboration with people from different disciplines. Her works are rich in the details of daily life and her compassion for social phenomena comes from both where she has been raised and where she currently lives. Jing He refers to herself as a cultural hybrid. The same seems to be true for her works. They are hybrids between different creative disciplines, cultures, co-creators, materials and mediums.

Jing He's works have been included in the collection of The Art of Institute of Chicago (US), and Françoise van den Bosch Foundation (NL) collection, which is held by the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam (NL). She was nominated in the final list of Hublot Deseign Prize 2018, The Best of DDW (Dutch Design Week) 2016. She is the winner of Gijs Bakker Award 2016.
