Ming Zhao

MA work

Everyone is this one

Inspired by and based on object-oriented philosophy, Ming Zhao’s works concern daily objects and their potential for autonomy. During her research, she became interested in ‘correlationism’ and ‘miscorrelation’. (Correlationism – a philosophical standpoint that we cannot directly access thinking and being, but only the correlation between them.)

Everyone is this one can be seen as questioning these two points of view in the form of art practices. Ming hopes that, through these experimental practices, viewers and the artist herself can have a new and deeper understanding of themselves and the everyday objects around them.

  • The way we and all things die is by drowning in the time that we have constructed.

    Traces of deconstruction, weird perspectives and a feeling between funny and sad is everywhere in Ming's work. Inspired by object-oriented philosophy, her works try to discuss some ontological questions through the practices of her art. She believes that objects are autonomous and cannot be exhausted and that art may help us get closer to the endless end.
