Leah Zhang is a multi-media artist and image creator. She received her BA and MAs in the direction of Film Studies at East China Normal University, China and the University of Leeds, England. She received her MFA at Rhode Island School of Design, RI, US in June 2021.
Leah’s work is a research practice around film and media studies. She is simultaneously concerned with the socio-historical implications of media as a means of communication, as well as the relationship between ecology and human media as a technological device for measuring, discovering, and recording nature. Through photography, film, and sound, her work engages socio-history and nature through multi-sensorial, surreal and affective transfigurations.
Leah currently lives and works in Shanghai, China.
