Stella Chen is a Taiwan born, Sydney based interdisciplinary artist. Her early life, dedicated to language and culture, has influenced her artistic practice exploring the legacy of post-memory, and the residue of intergenerational trauma from the perspective of resilience. Chen adopts a practice-led research methodology with theoretical frameworks in postcolonialism, feminism and capitalism. The aesthetic of fragility, vulnerability and ephemerality forms the basis of her visual language.
