YANG FUDONG 杨福东
2010
B&W inkjet print
180*120cm
Edition of 10
YFDU114

This series of works includes seven photographs, and was accomplished at the swimming pool of the International Hotel rented for this occasion. Yang Fudong’s work was inspired from special instants where sportsmen/women have part of their body coming out from the water in swimming competitions. In these particular struggling yet inconsequential moments, the artist found a certain aesthetic, and created this series of photographs presenting young women by a swimming pool.

The atmosphere of the International Hotel and the women makeup remind of portraits usually seen in calendars from the Republican period, the same kind of portraits as those found in Yang Fudong’s previous works a well. This work, from an inspiring instant to its realization, constitutes a process on women’s “beauty” creation. The artist refined it to its most moving elements: swimming pool and women in bathing suits, however the background was changed, instead of a sport competition it became a leisure game, where women’s youth and beauty are tantalizingly shown.
