Yu Honglei

Artworks

    • Yu Honglei produces video and mixed media works that frequently take everyday objects as their starting points. Through playful re-arrangement of familiar elements and motifs from the cannon of Western art history, Yu imagines new and productive possibilities for creative materials rendered all-too-familiar in books and media. His work examines the translation of imagery through art over time, but at the same time, he approaches canonical works with irreverence, acting with the impetus to “culture jam” common cultural texts and to allow viewers to see them anew. Tang has exhibited widely, namely at Shanghai Art Museum, Shanghai (2007), National Museum of Contemporary Art, Seoul (2007), Museum of Contemporary Art, Taipei (2008), Platform China Contemporary Art Institute, Beijing (2008), Victoria and Albert Museum, London, (2008), Museum of Contemporary Art, Shanghai (2011) and Aike-Dellarco, Shanghai (2013).
