陈嘉璐 Chen Jialu

1992 年出生于广东东莞,现生活工作于广州,获得伦敦艺术大学纯艺术学士学位。2016-2017年黄边站当代艺术研究中心年度研究员,是女子天团 NZTT Sewing Co-op成员,上阳台空间业主,及“姑婆屋”的“姑婆”。她以关注的对象作为土壤,生长出不同媒介的图像和文本,以诉说敏锐细腻的观察和伤痛。近期关注珠三角的早期移民女性—自梳女下南洋的漂流记忆和路线,并将自身的经验代入人与土地的关系,对消逝的网络进行追踪。

Chen Jialu was born in Dongguan, Guangdong, in 1992 and currently lives and works in Guangzhou. She obtained her Bachelor of Fine Arts from the London University of the Arts (2015). From 2016-2017, she was a researcher at Huangbian Station Contemporary Art Research Center, and she is currently a member of the NZTT Sewing Co-op*, as well as one of co-proprietors of the artist-run space Soeng Joeng Toi (SJT) and “Gu Po” (comb sister) of “Gupouk” (comb sisters' house). Speaking through her keen and delicate observations as well as forms of trauma, she nurtures material objects of interest as a form of soil from which to grow images and text with a variety of media. Her recent work focuses upon a disappearing network of early 20th century migrant women from the Pearl River Delta. The memories and routes of these “Comb Sisters” who journeyed to Southeast Asia are supplemented with her own experiences as an inquiry into the relationships between individuals and the land.








* 女子天团 NZTT Sewing Co-op,我们因创作、交流和互助聚集在一起,探索创造力的柔软或硬核,保持软女和硬女并肩而行。我们在缝纫中互相对话、陪伴和互助,每周一日为缝纫机开放日,在上阳台空间开放给所有人来自由使用缝纫机。

NZTT Sewing Co-op currently comprises three members: BUBU, Jialu, and Money. A collective founded upon mutual-aid, creation, and communication, NZTT explores both the soft and the hard cores of practice, and—moving shoulder to shoulder—its members balance between both the hardcore and the openly flexible, trying to build a community of mutual support through sewing-based activities and events. NZTT opens their sewing machine for anyone to use with a weekly Sewing Machine Open Day, hosted every weekend at the SJT space in Guangzhou.
