Royce Ng is an artist currently based in Hong Kong working in digital media and performance who deals with the intersections of modern Asian history, trans-national trade, political economy and aesthetics.

From 2013-2016 he was artist-in-residence at the Johann Jacobs Museum in Zurich with the anthropologist Daisy Bisenieks where they produced the exhibitions on the economic relationship between Africa and Asia 'A Season in Shell' (2014) and 'Mutual Aid' (2016). In 2015, working with Bisenieks as the collective Zheng Mahler, they were selected to represent Australia at the Pavillion Without Borders for PERFORMA biennale in New York City. In 2012, he was selected to participate in the 9th Gwangju Biennale and the Busan Biennale’s in South Korea.

Two new large scale Zheng Mahler commissions were featured in the 2019 exhibition 'Phantom Plane: Cyberpunk in the Year of the Future' at Tai Kwun Contemporary in Hong Kong and in 2020, he will have his first solo presentation in Japan with 'The Death of Manchuria...' at ASAKUSA in Tokyo. www.zhengmahler.world
