Ji Jia (b. 1994, China)
Currently living in Bergen, Norway.
The conceptual-based practice of Ji Jia involves site-specific installation, performance, and video. She uses her body and ready-made daily life materials to intervene in space and architecture. Through the construction of subtle interventions, she breaks the audience's habitual cognition and alters the existing environment. She uses black comedy as her aesthetic basis, putting the audience in familiar yet exceptional situations, thus triggering thinking, criticism, and questions.
