About the speaker
Zheng Mahler is an ongoing collaboration between artist Royce Ng (b. 1983, Australia) and anthropologist Daisy Bisenieks (b. 1983, Australia) which examines global trade, the relational networks connecting nature, technology and human geography and beyond, as well as flows of mutual influence and the environmental architectures produced. The pair use digital media, performance and installation to develop speculative scenarios and immersive encounters that explore the limits and potentials of their respective disciplines. Together, they have exhibited, performed and participated in numerous art spaces, institutions and residencies, working alongside various communities in Australia, Asia, Africa, Europe and the US.
Mi You is a curator and researcher working at the intersection of ancient and futuristic technologies and networks.
