Funa Ye

Funa Ye is an artist exploring the relationship between the realities of everyday life and the perceived connection between authority and social life. Her practice studies the different power structures, ethnic groups, and the fictional space of propaganda striving for the concept of ‘perfection’ within an ideological system, and a utopian landscape. Therefore, the work is politically charged, subtly engaged in pastiche as a satirising style of propaganda, rich in reference, parody, and irony of uniformity cultures. Funa holds a BA in Experimental Art from Central Academy of Fine Arts (China), an MA in Fine Art from Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design (UK). She is currently pursuing a practice-led PhD at Slade School of Fine Art (UK). She has been an artist-in-residence at K11 Foundation (Hong Kong), Pro Helvetia Swiss Council 2018 Studio Residency (Bern) and exhibited her work internationally – from Eil Klein Gallery (New York) to Bilsart (Istanbul) and Nottingham Contemporary. Funa is based in London.
