JUJU WANG 王珏

美籍华裔装置艺术家
Chinese-American Installation Artist

JUJU结合东方传统文化和西方现代审美,通过城市建筑的改造和装置艺术的呈现,提升现代群体对中国传统文化的认知、欣赏和喜爱。
她出生在中国,在美国长大,因此两国的文化从小深深影响着她。从加州大学伯克利分校土木工程硕士毕业后她回到中国,在学习考察中国传统手工艺和文化的同时,发现这些传统因为离现代生活渐远而慢慢消失。为了提升人们(特别是年轻群体)对中国传统的认知和喜爱,她结合东方文化和西方审美,以城市建筑改造和装置艺术的呈现手法,让传统(技艺、图案、文化)重新回到人们视野中。

Combining traditional oriental culture with western modern culture, Wang Jue strives to improve the modern society’s collective ability to perceive, appreciate and adore traditional Chinese culture by transforming city buildings and exhibiting installation works of art.
Born in China and brought up in US, Wang has been greatly influenced by both cultures. After graduating as a Master in Civil Engineering from UC Berkeley, she is gradually alert to the fact that the handicraft art and traditional art in China are disappearing. In order to make people, especially the young, fall in love with Chinese traditional culture, she has started to put together the oriental and western aesthetic conceptions and bring the traditions back to people.
