Kristin Man is an interdisciplinary artist and author of two publications. Born in Hong Kong, she imagines being from the planet of Venus, living in diaspora on Earth and has affinity to the seven seas. She writes in English, Chinese and Italian. Recently, she wrote the lyrics in Cantonese, sang accapella to the jazz tune Misty, in the video she shot. In projects "A-MARE", "Arches in Italy", " 9_9" and "Fragments of Grey Matter", she marries her written and visual poetry of her images. She is also a certified yoga teacher and believes that life and her art traverse inside-out and outside-in.
Kristin holds an IB from UWC of the Atlantic in Wales, a BA from Brown University and an MBA from Columbia University in the US. Her artistic research has led her to a deeper yoga practice via teaching which in turn influences her artwork. Since 2018, she has been focusing on project “A-MARE” (to love-to sea) which initiated with weaving her photographic images printed on various materials into 3-D artworks and has evolved to include found plastic objects and industrial scraps. Kristin found herself immersed in black & white analog photography and in the darkroom in the 1990s.
Kristin has exhibited internationally. Her works of art invite viewers to question what being human means by exploring disconnects between shared human issues like social justice, migration, anthropocene and consumerism.
