About

Gun and Hot Water Bottle is part of a project called Dead Horse Bay

There is an abandoned beach named Dead Horse Bay, which used to be a landfill for New York City garbage. “From there, I collect remnants of the past garbage which are already charged with human emotions they have acquired in the practice of everyday life. The objects are transposed to a real space where they become something else. Through my act of lifting, transporting, scattering, suspending, grouping, heaping, arranging, the objects start to lead a new life, which seem to sit between the past and the uncertain future. The images and objects lie between the recognizable reality, and the ambiguous imagination.“

Jiaxi Yang was born in Shanghai, China in 1989. After earning her MA degree in Visual Arts Administration at the New York University, she co-founded Fou Gallery. And at the same time, she fell in love with photography and began her studies at the International Center of Photography. Her photographs have been exhibited at International Center of Photography. She was recently awarded the winner of PDN Photo Annual 2015, the winner of LensCulture Emerging Talents 2015, the winner of Surface magazine’s 15th Avant Guardian photography competition. Her handmade book The Horizontal Mode of A Waking Life was nominated for Luma Rencontres Dummy Book Award Arles 2015.
