The gallery will present new sculptures made of bronze and resin and a video installation. Yu Honglei (b. 1984) lives and works in Beijing. Yu Honglei draws upon wide visual vernacular from visual cultures of Chinese urban landscapes and poetry. Yu Honglei keenly observes the translation, transposition and circulation of images, by weaving through the physical and the digital realm of image production. In his interest in plasticity of cultural knowledge and aesthetics, what arises is a constellation of hermeneutic and polysemic output, executed through highly personal artistic discourse.
Yu Honglei’s work has been showed internationally in Daimler Contemporary, Berlin (2017); ZKM Center for art and media, Karlsruhe, (2017); chi K11 Art Museum, Shanghai (2017); Carl Kostyál, London, (2017); Fondazione Baruchello, Rome (2017); Long March Space, Beijing, (2017); Antenna Space, Shanghai (2016); Upstream Gallery, Amsterdam (2016); M WOODS, Beijing (2015); Museo Pino Pascali, Polignano (2016); Telescope, Beijing (2015); Spring Workshop, Hong Kong (2015); Rubell Family Collection, San Antonio Museum of Art, Texas (2015); Minsheng Art Museum, Shanghai (2015); Magician Space, Beijing (2013).
