Based in Yangjiang, a Chinese city in the region of Canton where he lives and works, Zheng Guogu has been conducting a complex artistic project questioning society after the Cultural Revolution for the past twenty years. His interest in land transformation and territorial planning led him to acquire a parcel of land in 2000 where he inaugurated his Empire project five years later, inspired by the video game "Age of Empires." He developed an ideal architecture that thwarted Chinese land regulations and where the physical, spatial and mental energies came together to constitute a new whole. In constant transformation, the project has since taken the name of Liao Garden and unfolds from the personal habitat of the artist in Yangjiang to several spaces on the outskirts of the city in a free and abstract geography, in permanent evolution. Zheng Guogu is also collaborating with the Yangjiang Group, which he co-founded in 2002.
