Zheng Bo's, "Beech, Pine, Fern, Acacia," at Kiang Malingue

Zheng Bo: Beech, Pine, Fern, Acacia

Zheng Bo’s “Beech, Pine, Fern, Acacia” presents four of the artist’s “biophilia” films together in the same space for the first time ever. At Kiang Malingue’s Tin Wan gallery, visitors can find the films displayed on monumental screens within the dark concrete space, where each of the four works paints a distinctive vision of different ecological scenarios, conceived with underscoring narratives like contact between queer humans and queer plants, sensual encounters with flora, ideas of symbiosis and community, and more. Featured are the works Pteridophilia, featuring an environment of ferns; beech trees of the UNESCO World Heritage site in Brandenburg, Germany, filmed for The Political Life of Plants; Samur, filmed under an acacia tree in Dubai; and Le Sacre du printemps, which features a cast of Nordic dancers in courtship with pine trees, referencing the 1913 experimental work by the choreographer Vaslav Nijinsky and composer Igor Stravinsky.
