Wang Chen's artistic inspiration comes from her family history and personal memories. She uses video art and small-scale installations to explore feminist themes such as the female body and libido, as well as significant milestones in women's lives, including the transformative experiences of pregnancy and motherhood. Chen's art practice also explores her East Asian cultural identity, which intertwines her connection to her homeland and the emotions associated with her diasporic experience as a first-generation migrant to Australia. Her work aims to evoke an emotional resonance that transcends cultural boundaries, speaks to universal experiences, and promotes empathy and understanding across diverse communities.
