Lu Yang

Lu Yang was born in 1984 in Shanghai, where she continues to reside. She graduated from the China Academy of Art in 2010. She freely mixes live-action video, animation, digital painting, installation and music in her video works, which draw inspiration from a wide range of themes, including science, religion, psychology, medical science, video games and pop culture. Her work is characterized by its irony that questions common sense in a style that seems chaotic or even silly. Her recent major solo exhibitions include “Port Journey: Yokohama-Shanghai Lu Yang” (Zou-no-Hana Terrace, Yokohama, 2016) and “Lu Yang Screening Program” (3331 Arts Chiyoda, Tokyo, 2013). Her group exhibitions include the Venice Biennale 2015 (China Pavilion), Fukuoka Asian Art Triennale 2014, and “A Shaded View on Fashion Film” (Centre Pompidou, Paris, 2013).
