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.
