Vivien Zhang (b. 1990) was born in Beijing, grew up in Beijing, Bangkok, and Nairobi, and currently lives and works in London. Zhang's work looks at the idea of repetition and painting as a site for assemblage. The artwork no longer serves as a place for the narration or representation of an image or scene. It is where elements congregate and collide, which may include context-specific motifs, residue from activities in the studio, or extractions of previously employed motifs.
