The first-ever survey exhibition in Australia of China’s pre-eminent moving image artist, Yang Fudong, comprises three seminal video installations as well as The Coloured Sky: New Women II (2014), a brand-new five-channel work that has been proudly commissioned by ACMI and the Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tamaki.
Chinese artist Yang Fudong has firmly established himself as one of the world’s most extraordinary moving image artists. His work’s lyrical and dreamlike qualities, long and suspended sequences, spiralling narratives and multiple perspectives reflect the psychology of a new generation as it struggles to find its place in present-day China.
