Experience the first-ever survey exhibition in New Zealand of China's preeminent moving image artist, Yang Fudong.
Shanghai-based Yang Fudong has firmly established himself as one of the world's most extraordinary artists working in video installation. His work's lyrical and dreamlike qualities, long and suspended sequences and multiple perspectives reflect the inner worlds of a new generation of Chinese grappling to find their place in the modern world.
Yang Fudong: Filmscapes features three works: The Fifth Night (2010), Yejiang / The Nightman Cometh (2011) and The Coloured Sky: New Women II (2014), a new five-channel work proudly commissioned by Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki and the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI).
A one-off screening of Yang's epic Seven Intellectuals in a Bamboo Forest (2003-2007) will also be scheduled during the exhibition.
Yang Fudong: Filmscapes is presented in association with the Australian Centre for the Moving Image, Melbourne, and curated by Ulanda Blair.
