Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

As part of his unwavering endeavour to conjure characters that can embody the liminal state of humanity, Haiyang conceived Skins, a collection of six pastel works paired with animation. The paintings, depicting hair-covered ancestral men and women, live in a surreal pictorial space that subverts the passage of time.
This unlikely cast of characters is transplanted from the prehistoric era into the contemporary stage as actors and re-enactors of modern human mannerisms while also ironically being commentary, and unawarely so, of the absurdity of contemporary times.

In Skins, Haiyang masterfully plays on the viewers’ natural instinct to feel both extraneous and yet connected to the narrative, bound to recognise part of their human experience reflected in the eye of these biomorphic creatures.

Graduated from the printmaking department of the Central Academy of Fine Arts, Wang Haiyang (b. 1984 in Shandong, China, currently lives and works in Beijing) employs a multimedia approach to expand the rhetorical scope of art. His work reflects on contemporary existential topics while investigating, through the medium of the body, themes such as identity, language and lust. Wang's works have been selected and received critical acclaim by more than 50 International festivals. In 2010, Wang Haiyang's first animation movie Freud, Fish and Butterfly won the Grand Prize at the Holland Animation Film Fest (HAFF). In 2012 Wang's film Double Fikret won the Silver Dove at the 55th DOK Leipzig Film Festival (Leipzig, Germany). In 2014, Wang won the Jury Nomination Award at the 3rd Huayu Youth Award in Sanya, China. His recent solo shows include Wang Haiyang at Capsule Shanghai (Shanghai, China) and Wang Haiyang at White Space Beijing (Beijing, China), both in 2018; By Himself at OCAT in Xi'an, China (2017); New Directions: Wang Haiyang at Ullens Center for Contemporary Art (UCCA) in Beijing, China (2016); Dynamic Field: Wang Haiyang at Minsheng Art Museum in Shanghai, China (2016).
