Ziyi Wei

Wei Ziyi examines the structures of social relations, she seeks to unearth, contest, and transmute the conventional reality, all while reckoning with the profound trauma and suffering that plagues the feminine identity. A queer woman from Guiyang City, China, faces cultural frictions and challenges such as the absence of protection, sexual violence, and ideological oppression, shaping her resilience. She explores the complex interplay between the human psyche and materialistic reality, with a focus on the body, desire, and morality. Through diverse mediums such as painting, sculpture, and digital collage, she creates eerie, and psychologically charged artworks with an almost fetishistic allure.
