Man shapes his environment, which shapes his brain. Two hundred kilometres from Beijing, men live among rocks waiting to be broken, cut, sanded. The same gestures come back again and again to write a history or damage and repair, with the wing that inexorably disseminates the traces of actions.
Yuyan Wang (b. 1989, China) is a filmmaker and multidisciplinary artist living in Paris. She graduated from Beaux-Arts de Paris in 2016 and Le Fresnoy - Studio national des arts contemporains in 2020. She takes inspiration from the endless media production underpinned by industrial productivity. Her works oscillate between film and installation, often in an immersive perspective with a disintegrating abstraction process.
