Zhao Bing Bin “MANG MANG”
Location : ShenZhen/ShangHai (China)
Mang Mang creates crisp studio portraits that embody many facets of his own psyche. For Mang, a picture cannot be too stylized for privacy. She’s not afraid to cut. Reorganize. Blur and distort otherwise simple photographs of herself to better represent a concept. Unlike Sherman’s material excess: Undeniable inspiration. Mang’s accessory choices are minimal and singular. Harmless household items turn into emotionally charged fetishes. Their relative safety becomes a point of contention.
Born Zhao Bing Bin, “Mang” means “blind,” a choice to “remind me not only to trust my own eyes, but also to use my heart to see the world.”
