The Substation/ Artist/Siying Zhou/
Born in China, Siying Zhou is a visual artist and based in Melbourne (narrm). Through producing predominantly installation works, Zhou uses spatial structure and materiality of various media, such as, video, photography, performance, drawings and text, to undertake her research about cultural difference and cultural representation, and to draw discussions about ontological issues about Asian immigrants and epistemological experiences formed in the visual art. Zhou’s artworks have been exhibited nationally and internationally and also included in private collections. Zhou is the winner of the Linden Art Prize 2018 and the National Gallery of Victoria Women’s Association Award twice in 2015 and 2017. Zhou has obtained the Master of Fine Art in the Victorian College of the Art, the University of Melbourne, in 2017.
