About the Artist:

Bo Zheng (born in Beijing, 1974; lives and works in Hong Kong) is an artist, writer, and teacher, committed to socially and ecologically engaged art. He investigates the past and imagines the future from the perspectives of marginalized communities and marginalized plants. He has worked with a number of museums and art spaces in Asia and Europe, most recently Cass Sculpture Foundation (Chichester, UK), TheCube Project Space (Taipei), and Villa Vassilieff (Paris).

This exhibit emerged from an ongoing project at ICI focused on the intersections of the arts and humanities and climate change in the Himalayas. Learn more about ICI’s Climate Change Himalaya initaitive.
