Kachun Lay, (born 1989)
Is a Chinese-Norwegian artist from Lillesand based in Oslo. Lay works process-oriented in the field of sculpture, drawing, installation and performance. His work is about our personal relationships with the individual and social circles. As he extracts elements from his own identity and experiences that have created changes around him, the work works as an excerpt from a mental diary. He defines his practice as a mixture of confessional and material-based art. Through his working method, Lay tries to manifest a state of mind and create a narrative for the viewer. He does this by using metaphors as a tool to create visual expressions that reflect the working-process.
Lay’s also have a background as an art handler. He has worked for The National Museum for Art, Architecture and Design in in Oslo, Norway, as well as for one of Norway’s most infamous artists, Hariton Pushwagner.
