April until June 2024

Payne Zhu (*1990, Shanghai) explores different economic systems and deals with the rheology of financial bodies competing with each other and the flood of existing concepts. In his quest to go into exile from within, Zhu designs an alternative to existing economy. Zhu often uses unconventional evocative images and celebrates in his works the discrepancy of the subject through the incompatibility of different technological media.
