Promotion André S. Labarthe
Born in 1989, Yuyan Wang is currently a student at Le Fresnoy - Studio National des Arts Contemporains. She has a degree from the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing (2012) and another from the Beaux-arts de Paris (2016), cum laude. Her often immersive multimedia projects move between video, performance and installation.
Among the diverse subjects that inspire her work are horror films, the culture of wellness, pseudo-sciences and the banality of everyday life. She subtly displaces existing forms and attempts to reframe the contemporary systems designed to induce optimistic states using an abstraction that deconstructs them. Cursus
