Bio:

Lunhua Kong (b. 1995) is an artist working and living in London and Beijing. She received BFA from the China Sichuan Fine Arts Institute in 2014. Lunhua studied photography at Royal College of Art 2018-2020, where she found the way to express and communicate using photography and moving images. Her photography LUNCH HOUR and moving CONSTANT CONJUNCTION #RAIN were selected by China Design Center as "New Horizon 2020". Kong’s photography ENERGY FLOW#1 was collected by Sichuan Fine Arts Society, China.
Her work seeks to manipulate and expand the narrative potentials of photography and video installation, interrogating the gap between concepts and images through holistic audience communication. Kong’s projects pay attention to the way that unique and hidden emotions inhabit clandestine spaces within contemporary culture. In particular, they examine the position of Asian females against a cultural background shaped by the revival of Confucian culture.
Presented in various media forms, Lunhua Kong's recent project 'Constant Conjunction' is an ongoing project that will continue in the near future. It discusses women as the "watched" role in the tea ceremony and reflections on contemporary Zen culture.
