Chih-Ying Chang (Zoey)
Based in London South Bomb Factory.
Chang’s artistic practice is rooted visually on surrealism and contemporary digital imagery. She structures her works in a few series that she tend to re-visit over time. This kind of practice enables her to explore different aspects of her study without sacrificing conceptual values of her thoughts.
In Chang’s works, she explores the multiplicities of gender, the complexities of sense of belonging and the rich visual symbol system the contemporary digital world has to offer. Over the years, her works progressed through asking questions, some of the most critical for her works are ‘How to visually represent an absence?’ ‘How to visualise gender-fluidity?’ In short, her works aim to conceptualise the unseen, in-betweens, sensitives and the abstract ideas that tend to be overlooked.
