Artlab Gallery
Art by  Zhizi Wang

Join us in the Artlab Thursday, July 11 from 5-7pm for the opening reception of MFA candidate Zhizi Wang's thesis show, "Absence and Proximity." The exhibition runs until Friday, July 26. The Artlab is open M-F from 12-5pm.

Emphasizing the affective scope of the digital imagery, Wang’s videos weave together fragmented, commercialized, omnipresent digital image from both private and public platforms into visual stories and poems. Starting off from a personal perspective, the videos in the exhibition also interrogate the relation between digital images and a broader audience: how does our relation with the image, and the bodies within, shift when considering the digital medium?


Zhizi Wang is a multimedia artist based in London and Toronto, ON. Her works look into the absurdity of the everyday imagery and negotiates the condition of subjectivity within the digital image culture. Wang holds her BFA from OCAD University and is currently an MFA candidate at Western University.
