Rengu Zhang headshot


Using a trans-cultural and trans-historical approach, Rengu Zhang orbits among the handmade, the digital, still and moving images. Relying on drawing, sculpture, performance and video, She is guided by the fluidities of perceptions, languages, geographies and cultures.  Through narrative, ambiguity, and the everyday mundaneness, she blurs fiction and fact to inquire and ponder about the construction of the feminine identity, boundaries, becoming, belonging and longing.  Her projects allude to both the panorama of the human experience and autobiographical accounts, using pseudo-landscapes or non-places as vehicles of altered realities and imaginings.

Born in Guiyang, China, she currently lives in X’an and New York as a netizen of the world. 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
