Meng Zhang is an animator from China. Through her work, she hopes to blur the boundaries between memory, subconscious, dreams and the real world, to reintegrate the "reality" that we can access through audio-visual language, and to uncover the inner motivation, self-identity or evocation of values that people have hidden or forgotten.
Her works are made up of simple elements of reality to piece together a dystopian fictional world that is disorderly and violates the logic and rules of reality, i.e., to reflect on the "normal" through the absurd. These works draw the viewer into the gap between order and sensibility, and through this worldview structure, she discerns and balances the self and the order of reality.
Fictional storytelling is her common way of expression, hoping to find multiple dimensions of "reality" through memory and life experience, and to provoke the audience to think about the world and self-talk through the expression of moving images and visual language.
