Jin Nv was born in Hebei province, 1984. She graduated from the Central Academy of Fine Arts with a major in Sculpture. As part of the ‘post 80’ generation, she has grown up an only child, and reflects on the distance between the self as a young girl and as a young woman, given two decades of tumultuous change. Jin Nv currently lives and works in Beijing. She comments, ““I want a world that is transparent, where people’s hearts can be understood at a glance.” Her paper sculpture series carries this sentiment in both ideal and material – a young woman, her form fragile and weightless, appears like a scrapbook keepsake. Her collection of multiple transparent dress sculptures are part of the permanent collection of White Rabbit Gallery, Sydney.
She has exhibited extensively within China already, including shows in the Central Academy of Fine Arts and Beijing Tokyo Art Projects, Beijing, Zendai MoMA, Shanghai and the He Xiangning Art Museum, Shenzhen. She is represented by Star Gallery in Beijing, and S.E. Gallery in Norway, She currently lives and works in Beijing.
