Bai


ZHENG Bo lives and works on Lantau Island, Hong Kong. Committed to multispecies vibrancy, he investigates the past and imagines the future from the perspectives of marginalised communities and marginalised plants. He creates weedy gardens, living slogans, and eco-queer films to cultivate ecological wisdom beyond the anthropo-extinction-event. In 2020, as artist-in-residence at the Gropius Bau in Berlin, he engaged in conversations with plant scientists and ecologists to speculate about how plants practice politics. He taught at China Academy of Art from 2010 to 2013, and currently teaches at the School of Creative Media, City University of Hong Kong, where he leads the Wanwu Practice Group.
