Zhu Ming


Zhu Ming is a performance and conceptual artist whose work is time based and usually involves physical extremities. Often performing inside of a custom made balloon, the artist will undergo certain actions that reference both his Chinese heritage and the futility of communication. In the 1990s Ming joined other artists to form Beijing East Village; this area was often considered the most experimental of the artist villages of that time. Many of his contemporaries from that area, including Zhang Huan, have become internationally renowned artists. Although Ming has not presented any major solo exhibitions as of recent, he has participated in several pivotal group exhibitions. Group exhibitions and performances this century include “Liquid Sea” performance at the Contemporary Museum of Sydney, Art2003, Chinese Contemporary, London, and “Cut In-Photos and Videos” China Artscene Warehouse, Beijing.
