Yue Yuan

Graduation year




I don’t make art objects, I create art events. Both an artist and a curator, each of my roles plays different parts in an event.

I think we live in a fluid society, all present things are transitory and in flux. It is possible and even necessary to anticipate their eventual disappearance. This is why my artistic practice escapes the present not by resisting the flow of time but by embracing it. Through these series of events, I shape my own identity and history, and questioning my place in society in the everyday routines. Often I use daily events and personal experiences as a means to reflect on contemporary life.

Through photos, texts and websites, I share with you my fragmented reality. If they can stay in your memory – because to me, our bodies are like moving art museums - you can carry them anywhere.
