Scope and Content

Exhibition catalogue of a selection of Yang Zhenzhong's works, displayed at Ikon Gallery in 2006.

Yang Zhengzhong's work can be characterised by a stringent logic, often focussing on details of everyday life to convey bigger truths. It reflects a smart apprehension of the media involved - photography, video, performance, sculpture and installation - brilliantly fusing subject matter with the means of representation. Each of his works derives dramatic effect from a kind of realism, an understanding that we are not on the other side of a looking-glass, but rather dealing with something that has impact on our actual experience.
