Funa Ye (born 1986, in Kunming, China) works in varied media includes video, Photography, installation, performance and participation projects.
Funa’s practice is mainly concerned with the relationship between the realities of everyday life, the perceived connection between authority and many areas of social life such as different power structure, ethnic groups, and the fictional space of propaganda for the concept of ‘perfection’ in an ideological system, and utopian landscape. Therefore, the work is politically charged, subtly engaged in pastiche as a satirizing style of propaganda. The work of Funa is rich in reference, parody and irony of the uniformity cultures. Recently Funa became a social activist. She organizing some internet based participatory, crowd- sourcing projects, such as Exhibitionist: Curated Nail and Peep Stream. She is using internet to work with people, questioning how art system may be incorporated into our private lives and social activities.
