In Focus: LuYang


Incorporating virtual reality, gaming subcultures, and popular music, Lu Yang creates wildly original and provocative experiences that celebrate the internet and its offer of control over one’s identity, partially liberated from the rigid confines of nationality, gender, and sexuality.

Immersive multimedia projects bridge the digital realm and physical space in a way that meaningfully challenges perceptual limitations of online and offline distinctions. The artist vocally refuses to ascribe political meaning to her work, criticizing the fetishization and politicization of contemporary Chinese art with the same colorful defiance typical of the dynamic prints, paintings, sculptures, videos, and spaces she creates.

Characterized by the seemingly limitless potential within the artist’s frenetic, expansive imagination, Lu’s work is as saturated with manga and anime influences as it is with religion, neurology, and the human body—interested not in the ends or means, but the pursuit of unexplored territory.
