「橘生淮南则为橘 生于淮北则为枳」——《晏子春秋·內篇杂下》
“Mandarins 橘(fruit) grown south of the Huai River are the mandarins, once transplanted to the north of the river, they become the ZHI 枳(fruit). They resemble the shape of leaves, yet differ widely in taste.”  - from Yan Zi Chun Qiu, an ancient Chinese book dated to c. 3rd century BC.
zhaoyuefan was born in Wuhan, China and grew up in Beijing, China. She has been working and living in Germany and Switzerland since 2016. 
zhaoyuefan's artistic practice revolves around her experience of living as a legal alien in foreign countries. Through video, installation, performance, and writing/storytelling, she uses lightness to touch on themes related to identity. Often starting with collecting images, texts and objects from daily life situations, her works are a series of translations, transformations and transpositions based on the transcultural context.
