Lives and Works: Shanghai
Hu Yun’s works range from graphite and watercolors to performance, video, and installation. Interested in how an individual positions him or herself within the course of history, he constructs the links that probe the inseparable coexistence of past and present, individual and public. He is adept at mobilizing various personal and historical experiences, incorporating previously produced materials into his artworks; as a consequence, it is impossible to consider any of Hu’s works in isolation since they all share a common theme, an element of foreshadowing, and they are all conceptually interconnected. Fascinated by the ways that museums embrace to bring the audience back to some context, Hu Yun frequently borrows and imitates in his installation works some of these techniques commonly on museum shows in order to prompt people to reflect on the relationship between the objects displayed and themselves.
