(b.1990). She graduated from the oil painting department of Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts in 2015. Dandizi’s works are characterized by a symbiosis of media: Her use of video, installation, photography, and literature form integral parts required to illuminate intimate, short-lived moments in time, and human emotion. Her works explore the perception and experience of encounters with reoccurring phenomena of the natural and artificial world. Dandizi’s art explores central themes such as self-knowledge and observation of her lived environment. Revealing the fleeting nature of hidden connections between a unique moment and emotion is at the heart of her creative process.
Her recently solo exhibition includes: Fear, No Fear, ( Times Art Center Berlin, 2021 ); Tropical Room (Hua International, Beijing, China, 2020); A Severe Hangover (Canton Gallery, Guangzhou, China, 2018).
