LuLu Meng was born in 1982 Taipei, Taiwan. She obtained the master degree of imaging arts from Rochester Institute of Technology in New York. Then she joined artists residency projects in Europe and the States. From a traditional Chinese Confucianism background, LuLu Meng develops her unique perspective and creative power when she lives under the impact of Western Individualism.
LuLu Meng re-shapes the objects which symbolize social class with her subtle observation among individuals, groups and cultures. She brings these objects to lives through her exquisite craft. By putting these similar objects together into a large installation, her works demonstrate a small society and the audience could re-explore the meaning of life.
In recent years, LuLu Meng has been invited to participate in museum exhibitions and cooperative projects. This year, with the invitation of the Biennale of The Bronx Museum of the Arts, she will display her artworks inspired by Artist in the Marketplace in July. In the cooperative projects, LuLu Meng made friends with artists, curators and critics. She gained great support and suggestions from them, and transfer the experiences to her motive force. Just like in Residency Unlimited project in New York, LuLu Meng met many artists and learned in-depth forms of art. In Experimental Film Virginia, she challenged herself to shoot an experimental short film. To re-define “we”, she employed the body movements as the core, which integrated with the sketches and the voice, and embodied the conflict and the reconciliation between emotion and rationality.
LuLu Meng focuses on the influences between the past and the present time. She not only combines her observation with the works, but also put her idea into action. She would share her working process and daily life on social networks. The audience could participate in her life through the posts and photos. Just like she took part in the Women’s March on Washington to demand a greater voice for women in American political life as a new president takes power. Through involving thees activities, she shows her spirit of her works and puts her concern in practice.
