Sidi Chen is a travelling queer artist from China. He has researched and visited various cultures around the globe. His multidisciplinary practice is influenced by his extensive intercultural studies and experiences, from which he is meant to archive the body in contexts of its contrasting roles within alternative environments, such as wilderness and domestic environments. Chen recently completed his BFA at the University of the Fraser Valley in British Columbia, and lives and works in BC, Canada.
Apart from his art practice, Chen is also a graphic designer, an art collector and a researcher for arts and cultural organizations
