Ning Zhou is a queer artist born in 1996. Only Daughter of a Chinese couple.
Ning Zhou's work combines photography, literature, moving images and sound. The aesthetics in her works are influenced by many literary books, such as Yukio Mishima’s "Golden Pavilion" and Hermann Hesse "Der Steppenwolf". She believes that love can only come from despair. Therefore, she does not shy away from discussing and reflecting on those trauma, confusion and depression she experienced as an individual during growing up.
All the works she has done so far are inspired by her personal experience, discussing issues such as gender, relationship and mental health. She usually presents them in a form of absurd and joking performance filled with personal characteristics.
