2016.07.09 - 2016.08.14
C-Space is delighted to present Yang Yuanyuan’s first solo exhibition at our gallery "At the Place of Crossed Sights (Part one)". The exhibition will open on Saturday July 9, 2016 and will run through August 14, 2016.
Yuanyuan Yang (b. 1989, Beijing) lives and works in Beijing. She received a BA (Hons) in Photography at the London College of Communications, University of the Arts London in 2013. Yang's practice involves various mediums, mainly concentrating in photography, but including video, performance and text. Yang’s projects usually begin with intensive historical research, by experimenting different ways of visual-storytelling, she creates the narrative where fact and fiction coexist to speak about topics such as memory, history and time. In recent years, she describes her way of working as ‘weaving‘: to create the structure of a complex web or system by ‘weaving’ different types of images into ‘image atlas’ combined with text. The works are usually being presented in the form of artist books and photography installations.
Yang’s work has been exhibited and published internationally. Awards from past three years include: Gucang Dummy Award Martin Parr Edition (second prize, 2016); Author Book Award at Rencontres d'Arles (shortlist, 2015); Best Photobook of 2015 at Fototbookfestival, Kassel (shortlist); Bloomberg New Contemporaries (shortlist, 2014); Magenta: Flash Forward (2013).
