Stella Zhong 钟笛鸣
Stella Zhong (b. 1993, Shenzhen, China) has lived in Beijing, the UK, and recently the USA. Her work spans activated objects, observed happenings, and built environments, which are saturated with inconsistencies that evade logic and definition. By applying arbitrary rules of space and dimensionality to sculptures, paintings, and videos, she renders new worlds that seem divorced from reality but truly exist.
Stella Zhong began to practice art when she was a child. She had her first solo exhibition at the age of eleven in Guan Shanyue Museum in Shenzhen, China. Her works have been exhibited and published internationally numerous times in recent years. She held her solo presentations at New York’s The Independent, Spring/Break Art Show, and Peninsula Art Space. Also, she has participated in group exhibitions at New York’s Chapter NY, ZH Projects, and Hunter College. Stella Zhong received her BFA in Glass from Rhode Island School of Design in 2015 and her MFA in Sculpture from Yale University in 2021.
The artist currently lives and works in New York.
