ZHENG Bo shares his recent projects since 2013 and about the practice of drawing weeds (绘稊修). The talk gives context to the new works created for the exhibition at ICA at NYU Shanghai and raises broader questions around multispecies equality and what it means to imagine ecological vibrancy.
In Chinese with English interpretation
In conjunction with Goldenrod, an exhibition by Zheng Bo.
Goldenrod and its related events are presented as the first season of The (Invisible) Garden, a two-year artistic research program that inquires into the garden as a method that shapes our understanding of Nature and our relationships to other species. For four seasons, from Fall 2019 through Spring 2021, the ICA at NYU Shanghai will present artists, thinkers, and practitioners, through exhibitions, events, and a publication, to consider the garden and ask how might we denature Nature?
