Ziping Wang was born in 1995 in Shenyang, China. Her distinctly fragmented and colour-saturated artworks seek to highlight the contemporary phenomenon of information overload, while chiming with sensory memory triggers through depictions of children’s toys, logos and food packaging.
Ziping looks to uncover the inevitable links that lie between memory and present notions of identity - how do our memories of the past inform the idea we have of ourselves? The work also grapples with the concept of transcultural identity over time - how do our memories of childhood in one place inform our present day actions in another?
