Born in Hubei in 1983, emerging artist Zhang Xiaodi presents an estranged form of ‘reality as it is’ through his captivating photographic works. He is a graduate of the Department of Film Art at the Beijing Film Academy, and the Department of Photography of the Central Academy of Fine Arts. In 2015 he began PhD studies at the Central Academy of fine Arts.

His background in film and photography gives him the tools and the vision to create works that blur the line between the cinematographic and the photographic. On the surface, his images might seem banal; on further contemplation, the viewer comes to realise that these works are deeply contemplative. Zhang makes use of imageries that are removed from the context of our daily experiences, and in so doing he is able to expose the discontinuity between image and meaning at the most basic level.
