Koko Li (b.1996, Beijing, China) is a Beijing and London based artist who recently graduated BA Fine Arts from Goldsmiths, University of London, 2019. Exploring her own body image, mind and surroundings as her art material, the artist predominantly works with chalk sculpture, kinetic sculpture, installation and performance. Her art practice crosses between art history, cultural difference, queer love and the complexity of interpersonal relationship. In her work, the artist considers the history of each material as a key element in her work. The process of sculpting and gathering materials are essential of the artist when communicating with the materials. In turn, she pushes the limits of the material as well as her self. It is the artist’s conscious analysis as well as emotional catharsis. The artworks carries both rational decisions and irrational emotions. The mind leads the material and the material leads the mind.
