WHEN : 18th September – 12th October
WHERE : Current Projects @ Ryan Renshaw Gallery

Dispatch 07 sees Siying Zhou’s work “Kitchen God’s Overseas Office” come to Current Projects dispatched from the Northern Centre for Contemporary Art in Darwin.

Born in 1980, Siying Zhou is a multi-disciplinary artist who takes major inspiration from her life experience, and an independent curator who emphasizes the connections between artworks and their exhibiting space and the unique experience that viewers gain in an exhibition. Zhou focuses on subjects such as the religious practice and cultural traditions in the life of the nomad, identity of individuals within the culture of globalization, the intricate relationship between the land and its dwellers and the correlation of physical and imaginary spaces. Zhou completed her Master at Sydney College of The Arts, the University of Sydney (SCA) in 2005 and was employed as Program Manager at 24HR Art (now Northern Centre for Contemporary Art) from 2007 to 2013. Zhou is currently studying Master of Contemporary Art at Victorian College of the Arts, The University of Melbourne
