Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

Yang Dongxue (b. 1984, Shenyang, China). Dong Xue works with sculptural and sound installation and
watercolor drawings, focusing on the artist’s perpetual struggle to express
himself honestly – and accurately - to the audience, and inevitably falling short. Dong Xue’s practice is marked by a deep ambivalence toward art production
and his role as a player in the contemporary art scene. He sees himself as a
“dedicated” and “serious” artist who is painfully aware of the futility of such
dedication and seriousness.
He aims to illustrate the prelude to art production, rather than the result or
objects of such production. His focus is on the thought process in “making stuff”,
while knowing that such artist-produced iterations will never fully meet the
artist’s expectations. Shifting the focus away from the outcome, Dong Xue
aims at demonstrating what transpires prior to giving birth to the object. The
conscious and subconscious act of conceiving the artwork is the focal point for
Dong Xue.
