Zhang Ding (b.1980, China)

Born 1980 in Gansu, Lanzhou, China. Lives and works in Shanghai, China.

Zhang Ding's art practice is mainly presented through his solo projects, including video,
installations, paintings and live performance, etc. Constructing absurd scenes full of contrast, he
demonstrates and interprets metaphors with societal references by focusing on sensory perception
and will. They may be seen as a series of deconstructed mise en scenes, or as an standing
sculpture revealing twisting and merging emotions. The scenic displacement, inspired by the
tensions and confrontation in terms of sensory cognition, creates a new spiritual world.
