Zhang’s practice is based on photography and video/film and from where extending to sounds, installations, writings, and socially engaging activities, with a focus on the media characteristic, technological trajectory, and physical existence of still and moving images as well as their entanglements with ideology and mundanity. Derived from artistic research and field studies, his work intends to explore a broad spectrum of subject matters in local, transnational, historical, and critical contexts, spanning from individual living conditions, stories, love, and memory, to collective archive, narrative, trauma, and identities.

基于摄影与视频/电影,他的创作关注静态与动态图像的媒介特性、技术轨迹、物质基础以及它们与意识形态和日常生活的纠缠,并由此延伸向包括声音、装置、写作和社会介入行动在内的实践。从研究和田野出发,他的作品意图批判性地探索不同语境下那些在地的、跨国的、历史的主题,并照映个体境况、故事、记忆和集体叙事、档案、身份的一体两面。
