Wei Weng

Wei Weng (b. 1981 Nanning, China; based in Melbourne, Australia) received her MFA from California College of Arts (’05) in Painting.

Wei Weng’s recent projects focus on the mechanism of cross-cultural experiences through interdisciplinary research and collaborative storytelling. Her first bilingual (CN/EN) publication Eat A Chili connects image production with sci-fi tales of thrill seeking behaviors. In her latest project Water Refuge, Wei Weng creates new fables based on Danish and Chinese literary concepts such as the little mermaid (Hans Christian Andersen) and the Master Thief (Søren Kierkegaard), immortals (神仙) and utopia (桃花源), while using open sea swimming to visualize the rejuvenation power of cold water on human psyche, cumulating in an series of cross-cultural events, photo book and exhibition design.
