Ming Lu

Ming Lu (b.1993, China) produces works in a diverse range of media, including painting, photography, sculpture, installation and performance. She lives and works in Berlin, Germany.

In her recent works Ming Lu takes inspiration from everyday materials, humorously adopting symbols and language from Chinese history. She uses many ordinary daily objects in her works, such as cosmetics (notably lipstick and facial masks), lingerie, hair extensions, furniture, and food, and transforms them into anthropomorphic playful representations of the female body and the female experience.
