About the Talk
Wang YuYang’s works are greatly influenced by the production of emergent media in our era, which investigates the relationship between artificial reality, media technology and historical perception. His interest lies in the artistry brought about by outdated technology, destructive aesthetics and material waste. Wang’s work is recognized by his use of humour, fiction and spectacles to explore and reflect upon the relationship between the human body, personal experience and cognition.
Through the artist talk, the audience will come to a deeper understanding of the motif behind Wang’s new series: The Moon, as well as its connections to his previous works. The audience will be acquainted with various ways to view at the artist’s works and the influence of his studies on emergent media. It also aims to create a deeper and more reflexive understanding of the new media art in the 20th century and seek to widen the perceived boundaries of art.
