Edouard Malingue Gallery is thrilled to share Zheng Bo’s participation in Liverpool Biennial 2021. Liverpool Biennial 2021 opens the second ‘inside’ chapter of exhibitions across the city on 19 May, bringing together the complete presentation of the 11th edition, The Stomach and the Port. In line with Government guidance, this final chapter will open the doors to the city, welcoming visitors from across the country to safely enjoy the UK’s largest free festival of contemporary art.

The Stomach and the Port, curated by Manuela Moscoso, presents a total of 50 artists from 30 countries around the world with 150 works of art, including 47 new commissions. It explores concepts of the body, drawing on non-Western thinking where the body is seen as fluid, being continuously shaped by, and actively shaping its environment. To navigate the breadth of the Biennial and to make connections between the artworks, a series of trails across the city will gather the exhibitions, outdoor sculptures and installations around the 3 curatorial entry points of The Stomach and the Port – Stomach, Porosity and Kinship.

Zheng Bo presents a new commission, the fifth of his Pteridophilia series (2016-ongoing), alongside Pteridophilia 1 to 4 at FACT Liverpool. His ongoing film series connects queer plants and queer people, pushing the boundaries of sexuality and love to incorporate the natural world. Alongside film works by Zheng Bo, FACT (until 29 August) presents The Only Good System is a Soundsystem (2021), a new audio-visual commission by B.O.S.S. (Black Obsidian Sound System), positioning sound system culture as a space of communal strength, where kinship is formed and reciprocated, against a background of repression and discrimination in the UK. The installations suggest ways of coming together that move beyond our experience as individual humans, incorporating the world of humanity, nature and technology.
