Ophelia Yingqiu Zhao is a Vancouver-based artist and curator, and MA candidate in the Critical and Curatorial Studies Program at UBC. She holds a BFA in Visual Arts from UBC. Her interdisciplinary practice spans photography, performance and writing; her artistic language concerns itself with the physicality and materiality of immaterial art. Her first book, One-and-Twenty (2020) is an ongoing text-image project written by each of Zhao’s artistic alter egos. Zhao has curated exhibitions and shown artworks at galleries and artist-run spaces in Vancouver.
