Zhuang Hui was born in 1963, in Yumen, Gansu, China. He lives and works in Beijing. Zhuang Hui is a multifaceted conceptual artist whose main activities include performance, sculptural installation and photography. Born in Gansu Province, he attributes his early interest in art to his father, who was an itinerant studio photographer. Performance is an important part of Zhuang Hui’s work; it doesn’t always take place in front of the public but it’s fundamental to his work and its realisation. Zhuang’s best known works include impressive installations and a series of large-scale portraits of groups of workers made with a party camera that allows very long formats. Zhuang Hui has always been deeply motivated by humanistic as well as aesthetic concerns. While his work spans a wide range of materials and approaches, almost all his works tell us about real events and places. At the core of his work is the direct experience of the political ideals that underlie the era in which we live and which are slowly unraveling in the face of modernity.
