Zhang Mengqi

In one of my earliest projects I had my mother tell me about my birth while I danced an interpretative response. I was interested in how recounted experiences—my mother’s memories, in this example—can be combined with imaginative performance. In the Self-Portraits, histories I’m being told are often very heavy. Dance and imagination lighten them.
