Gary Zhexi Zhang is a British-Chinese artist and writer. His current research, ‘erotic communism’, explores the entanglement of bio- and technological networks in material, speculative and poetic imaginaries, led in part by the social amoeba, Physarum Polycephalum. Zhang is especially interested in the relationship between behaviour and morphology, particularly within decentralised social organisations: mycelia, swarms, internets and markets. He is a staff contributor at Frieze magazine and has also written for publications such as FOAM, MAPElephant and Fireflies. Recent exhibitions include ALL CHANNELS OPEN at Wysing Arts Centre, Bourn, Cambridgeshire (2017) and Hereafter at The White Building, London (2017); recent residencies include Wysing Arts Centre (2017), BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Arts, Gateshead (2017); CCA, Glasgow (2017) and SPACE Art & Technology, London (2017).
