Ling Chun was born in Hong Kong, a society built upon a hybrid system of western and eastern. A foreign exchange program brought her to the United States at the age of seventeen. She then earned her BFA in visual communication design and ceramics from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2012 and her MFA in ceramics from Rhode Island School of Design in 2016. Chun has been focusing on the physicality of materials separating from their stereotype and cultural reference by questioning their authentic use and redefining them in her language.
Chun has been an artist in residence 2012-13 at Seward Park Clay Studio in Seattle, Washington, a summer artist resident at Arquetopia in Puebla, Mexico in 2015, and c.r.e.t.a.rome, Italy in 2016. She is also a long-term resident 2016-18 of Archie Bray Foundation, Helena, Montana. She is now a current long-term resident 2018-20 of Pottery Northwest, Seattle, Washington, where she continues her studio practice. She is the recipient of the 2018-2019 Artbridge Fellowship from Pratt Fine Arts Center & the recipient of the NCECA emerging artist award in 2020.
秦玲 （Ling Chun）出生於香港（前英國殖民地），一個高度中西文化交匯的城市。外國交流生計劃將當時十七歲的她帶到了美國；2012年，她從芝加哥藝術學院獲得傳播設計和陶瓷學士學位，並在2016年獲得羅德島設計學院的陶瓷碩士學位。秦玲一直專注於材料的物理性，通過質疑其真實運用，及以她的藝術語言作重新定義，將其從刻板印象和文化參照中抽離出來。她現正參加華盛頓州西雅圖市Pottery Northwest的藝術家駐村計畫，將繼續她的藝術研究。她也是Pratt Fine Arts 2018 -2019Artbridge & the NCECA Emerging Artist 獎學金的得獎者。
