Beijing-born artist Zheng Bo is now a resident on Landau Island, Hong Kong. He received a PhD in Visual and Cultural Studies from the University of Rochester and have taught at the School of Creative Media, City University of Hong Kong since 2013.
Zheng Bo gets inspirations from his multi-role as an art maker, a researcher and a teacher. His art is a long social and ecological engagement. Committed to multispecies vibrancy, he revisits the past and envisages the future through the eyes of the marginalised communities and plants. He creates weedy gardens, living slogans, and eco-queer films.
He has worked with a number of museums and art spaces in Asia and Europe, most recently Gropius Bau in Berlin, Kunsthalle Lissabon in Lisbon, and Kyoto City University of Arts Art Gallery; His works are included in the collection of Hammer Museum and Hong Kong Museum of Art. His projects are featured in Manifesta, the Taipei Biennial and the Shanghai Biennale.
