NGV Triennial: Mindy Meng Wang 王萌

Award-winning composer and performer Mindy Meng Wang 王萌 creates a series of sound interventions responding to works in NGV Triennial. Through her sonic compositions, Mindy develops a dialogue between the auditory and visual components within the gallery, to create an other-worldly multi-sensory experience.

Mindy Meng Wang 王萌 is a versatile Chinese/Australian composer and world-class modern guzheng player. She was born and trained in China and studied western musicology in the UK before emigrating to Australia. A contemporary pioneer of the guzheng, she introduces the ancient Chinese horizontal harp into many western genres including experimental, jazz, western classical, electronic and improvisation.

Her work is an important part of a significant movement of Chinese musicians redefining and reinvigorating their musical tradition on the global stage. Her long-term vision is to create a strong voice for young female composers and artists of Chinese heritage, and to create a deeper and reciprocal musical connection between Australia and China.
