Hanwen Zhang is an artist and filmmaker currently based in Berlin. He holds an MFA from the School of Visual Arts in New York and was the recipient of the SAH Award for Film and Video 2020. He has participated in various artist-in-residencies and fellowship programs including the Braunschweig Projects in Braunschweig, the Oberhausen Seminar in Oberhausen, the Fosun Foundation Art Residency in Shanghai, the BRIClab Video Art Residency in New York, the VSC Artist-in-Residency in Vermont, etc. His work has been exhibited and screened at venues such as the Power Station of Art in Shanghai, the OCAT Institute in Beijing, BY ART MATTERS in Hangzhou, the CACHE Space in Beijing, as well as at film festivals including the Beijing International Short Film Festival and BBC LongShots.
Zhang’s artistic practice revolves around capturing photographs, videos, and films, employing documentary as a narrative and self-reflective device. His work encompasses various mediums such as sound, installations, and writings. Drawing from artistic research and field studies, he examines landscapes, infrastructures, and mundane activities through images and texts, weaving them within a network of local, transnational, historical, and ideological contexts. Throughout this process, Zhang reflects on subject matters spanning from individual existence, (hi)stories, love, and memory, to collective archives, narratives, trauma, and identities, as well as their entanglements with the technological trajectory and physical existence of the image-based media.
