Yang Zhenzhong


‘Passage’, 2012 by Yang Zhenzhong
single channel video, colour

YANG Zhenzhong (China, b. 1968) has explored spatial relationships in many of his video projects throughout his career. In an ongoing examination of the personal, political and institutional, Yang turns the camera to record actions and construct situations that deliberate from a precise point of view. ‘Using the convention of perspective, Zhenzhong’s LANDSEASKY artwork Passage speaks to the transitional space between spaces. A space that is cut away, removed from all visual references of ‘the other side’.  While portraying an exaggerated long space it is in fact a flat screen space that is before us that we must reconcile.

Zhenzhong’s work has been shown at the Venice Biennale, 2007; The Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, 2007; Shanghai Biennale, Asia Pacific Triennale of Contemporary Art 2006, Van Abbe Museum, 2011; Lyon Biennale 2013.; Guangzhou Triennial, 2012; His works can also be found in collection of significant public and private institutes such as MoMA New York, IKON Gallery (UK), Fukuoka Asian Art Museum, Musée National d’Art Moderne and the UBS Collection.
