Born 1999, China
Qi Zhuang is an interdisciplinary artist, filmmaker and animator based in London, United Kingdom. She received her BA in Illustration Animation from Kingston University in 2021 with a First Class Honours. Now studying at Royal College of Art (RCA), her works are influenced by Buddhism, phenomenology and symbolism, experiencing abstract cosmological ideas through intimate materialist ways with objects, sounds and body languages. Her previous projects shift across 2D animation, 3D animation, video, performance and installation, balancing reality and dreams in order to widen the fissures between the two.
Qi’s works have been exhibited in Russia, Singapore, U.S., U.K., India and China. As a researcher, her autobiographical essay “World, Symbol, Gaze” is archived in RCA library.
