Zhu Zhu(China, 1969)
Zhu Zhu is not only a poet, but also a writer of essays, art critic and curator of exhibitions of contemporary visual art. He has a degree in political science and law. Zhu Zhu's poetry often starts from everyday and recognisable situations and concepts (such as the body or the beach or the launderette across the street) which he then links to more metaphysical ideas and reflections. The language of Zhu Zhu is pure, without much imagery, but at the same time, is layered and has an unfathomable, mysterious undertone. His multiform poems include references to Chinese literary figures, fellow poets and musicians, but also to European writers and thinkers.
