Biography




Vemo Hang was born in Shanghai, China in 1991


While growing up, She lived and migrated between many countries, amongst them China, Japan, U.S, Germany and Switzerland. Seeking novelty, connections and intellectual reconciliations between different cultural historical bodies and environments is one of her strongest interests in art.


She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting from Maryland Institute College of Art in 2013 and her Master of Fine Arts from Zurich University of Arts in 2019. After Switzerland, she moved back to Berlin to further pursue her interest in culture history by studying art history at Free University Berlin.


Her works have been widely exhibited in different countries and she is currently active in Berlin.
