Artist website: zhuomengting.com
Zhuo Mengting (b. Guangzhou, China, 1990) creates performances, participatory installations, and concerts investigating the capacities and limits of social relations. Presence and liveness is at the heart of her practice, both for the audience and the artist. Her ongoing project Sound and Resonance explores sonic language and the politics of listening through a series of happenings predominantly using “non-instruments” and the body. The most recent scores were developed for MAO Torino, Italy and Cafe OTO London, UK.
As a performer and director, she has made work for theatres, galleries and other spaces, including a bar, a karaoke club, residential accommodation, and online. She studied Performance Making at Goldsmiths, University of London, where she is now based. Her work has been presented internationally, including in the UK, China, Germany, Italy, Czech Republic and Slovakia.
