Yang Fudong

Author: Jackie Wullschlager 2007

From Yang Fudong, China's greatest filmmaker and most painterly artist, whose ravishing monochrome film of regret and romance, "No Snow on the Broken Bridge" at Parasol Unit was one of the highlights of contemporary art in London last year, Tate has commissioned a multi-screen installation, "East of Que Village", which features a pack of untamed, untethered dogs fighting to survive in a desolate rural village in winter, where, like their human masters, they fall ill, die, are abandoned or are sold. It is the artist's bleakest work, which shows at best just one angle – the narrative, political one – of his richly diverse, ambiguous oeuvre.
