Zheng Guogu Biography

Zheng Guogu is a conceptual Chinese artist who emerged in the 1990s amid the profound shifts of China’s opening to a globalized world. Working with photography, calligraphy, painting, video and installation, Zheng revamps the local culture of his hometown Yangjiang and New China against the contexts and trends of global contemporary art. Zheng is also a member of Yangjiang Group, an art collective founded in 2002 in Yangjiang.
