b. 1968, works and lives in Shanghai

Yang Zhengzhong became famous in 2000 with his video “I Will Die” that features short sequences in which a series of people speak the phrase "I will die" to the camera. It was included as a multi-channel projection at the 2007 Venice Biennale to great acclaim. It is a disconcerting, soberly presented film that confronts the viewer with existential questions.
