Yi Zhang was born in 1996, in Wuhan, China. She currently studies and lives in Antwerp.
She started the painting department in 2014. After graduation in 2018 she found out there is a limit of painting, painting always starts from making the frame and ending inside the frame. She wants to be more free to use every material, so she decided to start at the department of In Situ3 at The Royal Academy of Antwerp.
For the past 4 years, she only worked on one project which is called “Nothing”. she feels every single day that there are too many things being produced in this world, when time goes by, after things turn to ash and people die, only dust remains. Human beings’ strength is too small, Anything a human being would like to change will be recovered by nature. Even if human beings cannot change nature, these seemingly futile behaviors have left a trail of them.
