Yimei Zheng grew up in China and currently lives in Germany. She holds a MA in Photography from Kingston University London, UK. She is now studying in MA Digital Media, University of the Arts Bremen, Germany.
Her practise focus on time-based media but also prints and installations. She explores found materials and mixing them with 3D rendering art, still and moving images, sound and writing, in attempts to disrupt traditional notions of desire, identity, objectification and normativity, manipulating the act of viewing to reflect our resolution-obsessed society. Often, emotion serves as a significant undercurrent in her work, drawing from the individual, Zheng creates experimental depictions of social issues and collective anxiety.
