Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

"How to Walk" is more about responding to the feeling and experience during my residency in FRAC: When environment and identity shift in terms of space, some scenes which used to be parts of everyday life would subsequently produce an odd yet very harmonious atmosphere reflecting reality: " something established has to seek new ways of moving and new values with the temporary help of wheels. It has to redefine the spiritual substance under the framework of misplaced identity. The contradictory relationship in the two works seems to be static and peaceful, but with a closer look, you’ll discover the deep anxiety hidden beneath.

Artist Profile

Based in: China

Yang Guangnan was born in 1980 in Hebei, China. Yang Guangnan graduated from the Sculpture Department of the China Academy of Art with B.A in 2006, and the Sculpture Department of Central Academy of Fine Arts with M.A in 2009. Currently she lives and works in Beijing. Her works have been shown at Centre for Chinese Contemporary Art, Manchester, UK; FRAC, Nantes, France; The France Art Center, Melbourne, Australia; Macao Museum of Art, Macao; International Art village, Taipei; UCCA, Beijing; Minsheng Art Museum, Shanghai; National Art Museum of China, Beijing, etc.

Taking the traditional language of sculpture as her starting point, Yang Guangnan gradually expands her artistic medium to installation and video. She investigates and elaborates upon personal experience in the everyday life, developing artworks that are charged with an emotional strength. Actively dealing with an individual’s living condition, identity, affects and temporal experience, the artworks are seemingly spontaneous and casual; also present and pervading in the artworks however, is a distinct, delicate, sharp, unyielding and resilient consciousness, that renders Yang’s practice utterly and patently singular.
