Ding Ren | Migrations
Ding Ren’s Migrations examines cross-cultural patterns and phenomena through analog photographic practice. This ongoing archive extends her work around notions of home and migration in relation to geo-cultural impressions and observations.
Ding is a nomadic artist and writer, born in China, who is currently based between Washington, DC and Amsterdam, NL. With a field-driven approach, her practice addresses the tension between the foreign and the familiar through such topics as geography, borders, and place. Her most recent project, Topographic Mindset, has been exhibited at the Amsterdams Centrum voor Fotografie and Upominki (Rotterdam, NL). Her other work has been presented at the Künstlerhaus Dortmund, Yuchengco Museum (Manila, PH), Transformer (Washington, DC) and the Smithsonian Archives of American Art. More at www.dingren.net.
Ding will be giving a public presentation of her work Wednesday, November 6th at 1:15 pm, Room 1007, Art & Design Building, George Mason University. Directions.
