Born in Zhangye in 1980, based in Shanghai, Zhang Ding is one of the most active and influential Chinese artists. His practice often consists in large scale projects including installations, sculptures, videos, paintings, frequently animated with live performances. These works presented as a whole, with a strong performative, musical, dramatical nature, explore notions related to human perceptions, collective consciousness, conflict of wills, power as well as psychological and physical manipulations. Zhang Ding's exhibitions and projects reflect on alienations taking place in a social and political context, and stage scenes with confrontational and chaotic natures.

In 2016, Zhang Ding founded CON TROL CLUB, a label hosting alternative parties and gatherings featuring multimedia installations, subculture music and visual performances in collaborations with various artists, musicians and fashion designers.

Selected solo exhibitions include: “Zhang Ding: CON TROL CLUB”, Fosun Foundation, Shanghai (2020); “High-Speed Forms”, OCAT Shanghai (2019); “Safe House”, the Bunker, Wyoming Project and the KWM art center, Beijing(2018); “VORTEX”, ShanghART, Shanghai (2017); “Devouring Time”, RAM, Shanghai (2016); “Enter the Dragon III”, Gillman Barracks, Singapore (2016); “Enter the Dragon II”, Chi K11 Art Museum, Shanghai (2016); “Enter the Dragon”, ICA London, U.K. (2015); “Gold & Silver”, Galerie Krinzinger, Vienna, Austria (2013).

His works were presented internationally in institutions and biennales such as: the 7th Guangzhou Triennial (Guangzhou, 2023); Astrup Fearnley Museum of Modern Art (Oslo, Norway, in 2017 and 2007); the Biennale of Lyon (Lyon, France, 2013); The Contemporary Art Museum in Houston, (U.S.A., 2012), among others.
