Born in 1984 and based in Shanghai, Lu Yang graduated from the China Academy of Art in 2010. Lu explores existential issues about the nature of life and where it resides, using a variety of media that include video, installation, animation, and digital painting, and video games. Armed with a overlaying mix of strategies taken from science, religion, psychology, neuroscience, medicine, gaming, pop culture, and music, Lu Yang overrides the often delusional belief that human control is privileged within this universe. Instead, highlighting the biological and material determinants of our condition and reminding one of our transient and fragile existence. With an edge of dark humor, Lu leaves no room for sentimentality. Her works have been featured in important solo and group exhibitions at the Ullens Center for Contemporary Art (Beijing), Centre Pompidou, 56th Venice Biennale 2015 China Pavillion, the Third Istanbul Design Biennial, Liverpool Biennial 2016, Shanghai Biennale 2012, Montreal International Digital Art Biennial 2016, Musée d’art contemporain de Lyon, Momentum (Berlin), Tampa Museum of Art, and the Fifth Fukuoka Asian Art Triennale, among others.
