Qinru Zhang(China, 1999) is a multimedia artist exploring identity, femininity, and uncanniness through digital and fine arts. Zhang transforms traditional femininity into an eerie existence through her gentle observation of feminine stories. Her work thinks about reality and imagination, digital existence, and the notion of mirroring. She graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design with Honors in 2022. Currently, she lives and works in New York City.
