Funa Ye’s practice studies the different power structures, ethnic groups, and the fictional space of propaganda striving for the concept of ‘perfection’ within an ideological system, and a utopian landscape. Therefore, the work is politically charged, subtly engaged in pastiche as a satirising style of propaganda, rich in reference, parody, and irony of uniformity cultures. The work of Funa is rich in reference,parody and irony of the conformity cultures.
She holds a BA in Experimental Art from Central Academy of Fine Arts (China), and an MA in Fine Art from Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design (UK). Her works have received international recognition and were exhibited at a number of group and solo shows at Klein Sun Gallery (New York), Goethe-Institut China (Beijing), K-11 Art Museum (Shanghai), La Biennale di Venezia 2015 (Chinese Pavilion), and more.
