2x+xy=1 (2018)

2x+xy=1 is an innovative collage film that employs a variety of post-production methods and a non-vococentric soundtrack to craft an otherworldly and science fiction atmosphere. The film consists of three chapters that blend performance art, abstract fluid components, and symbolic polygons to delve into the notions of body, gender, and sexuality. Zhang’s interpretation of these universal themes is exemplified in 2x+xy=1, as it confronts binary structures and questions the concept of humanity through the representation of altered queer bodies.

The film features music by Soularflair and Daniel Birch.
