Zhang Ding

Zhang Ding's practice is mainly presented through his solo projects, which includes video, installations, paintings and live performance. His works play on ideas of sensory perception and will, constructing absurd scenes full of contrast, often creating metaphors layered with societal references. These may be seen as a series of deconstructed mise-en-scène, or as an environmental sculpture of twisting and merging emotional atmospheres. 

Recent exhibitions include ShanghART, Beijing, China, The Armory Show, Focus Section, New York, Galerie Krinzinger, Wien, Austria, the Biennale of Lyon, Lyon, France, The Contemporary Art Museum in Houston, Shanghai Museum of Glass, Shanghai, TAOPU Contemporary Art Center, Shanghai, Shanghai Museum of Contemporary Art, Shanghai and the Xin Dong Cheng Space for Contemporary Art, Beijing among many others. In 2015 Zhang Ding received the Asian Art News Arts Award.
