Rengu Zhang headshot

Rengu Zhang was born in Guiyang, China and currently lives in New York. Her work investigates interpersonal dynamics, myths, boundaries and the construction of the feminine identity. She draws from the transient and divisive human panorama on micro and macro levels. Spending her time in the U.S. with short regular stints in China, she borrows from the sense of suspension and fluidity moving among perceptions, languages, geographies, and cultures as well as its losses. Pseudo-landscapes or non-places are vehicles holding altered realities and utopian/distopic imaginings. These spaces serve as metaphors for in-bewteenness of what is and what could be, where she orchestrates the mystique, ambiguous yet banal everydayness of being driven by undercurrents of desire, consensus and other commonalities. She creates emotively in reaction to and alluding to the panorama of humanity, its subsets, local, autobiographical experiences and larger phenomena. She is a committee member of World Unity Inc. Her work has been in group exhibits in Xi’an, China and Greece as well as the private collection of the Copelouzos Family Art Museum in Greece
