Introduction

YANG Zhenzhong (b. 1968) is an artist from Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province, currently based in Shanghai. YANG’s artistic practice mainly focuses on conceptual art, involving video, photography, installation, painting, sculpture, and other art forms. He has been active in the global contemporary art scene for a long time and participated twice in the Venice Biennale (2003 and 2007). Furthermore, as a curator, he has planned and initiated more than a dozen crucial contemporary art exhibitions and projects with artists in Shanghai since the late 1990s, including "Art For Sale" "Express Art Exhibition" "Hipic" and so on. On the one hand, YANG’s creations center around life and death with his cynical attitude to reinforce the numerous contradictions and disorders existing in society; on the other hand, he transforms and recovers daily life and political space within which people, objects, and landscapes reside.

Selected solo exhibitions include Me & Beuys Yang Zhenzhong: Cube, How Art Museum, Shanghai (2020); Background, No.12 DRC, Beijing (2018); Eternal Return | Вечное возвращение |, Moscow Manege Museum and Exhibition Association, Russia (2014); Background, No.12 DRC, Beijing (2018); Trespassing, YANG Zhenzhong Solo Exhibition, OCT Contemporary Art Terminal, Shanghai (2013); Don't Move, Yang Zhengzhong Solo Exhibition, ShanghART, Beijing (2011); YANG ZHENZHONG, Ikon Gallery, Birmingham, U.K. (2006); Light As Fuck!, BizArt, Shanghai (2002); Selected group exhibitions include: Art and China after 1989: Theater of the World, Solomon R.

(2017); Our Bright Future: Cybernetics Fantasy, Nam June Paik Art Center, Yongin-si, Korea (2017); Consumer, Salon 1.618, Palais de Tokyo, Paris, France (2009); Global Cities, Turbine Hall, Tate Modern, London, U.K. (2007), etc.

The artist’s works have previously been exhibited in numerous prominent exhibitions including Venice Biennale (2003,1007), Shanghai Biennale (2002,2016), Guangzhou Triennial (2002,2005,2012), Asia Pacific Triennale of Contemporary Art (2006), Lyon Biennale (2013), and so forth.
