Details

A self-taught photographer and video artist, Yang Fudong first studied oil painting at the China Academy of Art in Hangzhou, graduating in 1995. Since the early 2000s, he has used photography and film to explore both modern and traditional representations of China. Yang’s works are known for their visually lush aesthetics, often described as a melding of French New Wave cinema and classical Chinese ink paintings. His first film, "An Estranged Paradise" (1997–2002), won international acclaim in 2002 and was shown at Documenta XI. Yang’s ambitious five-part work "Seven Intellectuals in a Bamboo Forest" (2003–07) was presented at the Venice Biennale in 2007. Notable other works include "New Women II: Under the Colored Sky" (2014), "The Fifth Night" (2010), and "No Snow on the Broken Bridge" (2006).
