Hu Yinping was born in Sichuan in 1983, and currently lives and works in Beijing. Despite earning her MFA at the Central Academy of Fine Arts in 2010, her works are not limited to the materiality of sculpture. Instead, she channels chance meetings and fortuitous situations into insightful scenarios. Hu Yinping defines her art as a state between “event” and “work”, implying a deep connection between artistic practice and real life. Hu often labels the medium of her works as “event” and these works usually last for a period of time or are even ongoing. Such practices can be traced back to the three art groups she initiated after obtaining her MFA.
