Join rīvus participant, Zheng Bo, as they guide you through an Ecosensibility Exercise on closing weekend of the 23rd Biennale of Sydney where you will spend time with the trees that live at Barangaroo Reserve.  
Ecosensibility Exercise is born from a residency at the Gropius Bau in 2020 where Zheng Bo tested simple everyday methods to connect with plants, aiming “to move away from the human-centric ways of our contemporary life.” This bodily experience hopes to shift your relationship with the living beings we live amongst.

Participant Bios

Zheng Bo

Zheng Bo lives and works on Lantau Island, Hong Kong. Committed to multispecies vibrancy, they investigate the past and imagine the future from the perspectives of marginalised communities and marginalised plants. They create 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, they engaged in conversations with plant scientists and ecologists to speculate about how plants practice politics. They taught at China Academy of Art from 2010 to 2013, and currently teach at the School of Creative Media, City University of Hong Kong, where they lead the Wanwu Practice Group
