Born in Hong Kong, Kristin Man is a visual artist and writer living in three continents. She is known for Project “9_9”, her performance-like double-self-portraits of artists in Italy and herself, and her poetic weaving of poetry into her visual pieces. She is recently working on hand-weaving images together with her project “a-mare” conceived with the idea of defining and integrating diversity, working with physical, psychological, territorial and cultural borders.
