“Light and Easy” (2002) and “Light as Fuck (2001) are based upon a conviction that the lightness of the isolated exterior or interior is a source of interesting material. He perceives the weight of urban changes as an exterior phenomenon, and literally depicts the process as a weightless factor, turning urban landmarks upside down.
The works by YANG Zhenzhong display his hope to challenge the conventional definition of social behaviour. His creation is never destitute of metaphor, intelligence and humour. In Light and Easy 2, the artist arranged the video of cityscape along the bund upside down and presented unexpectedly an acrobatics performance. Beneath the appearance of urbanization, YANG realized the changes in weight of the city and therefore decided its weightlessness as descriptive element in this piece by holding the crucial construction upside down. In this very series, "light" and "easy" encourage the awareness accompanied by significance. They smash inside and outside previously separated from each other and produce a drama which is both amusing and thought-provoking.
