Yusi Zang is a Beijing born multi-disciplinary artist living and working in Melbourne. Connecting the poetics of her inner thoughts with the realism of banal objects, Zang’s work overthrows our sense of the familiar. She reconciles the concepts of boredom and the sublime, and revolts against the commonplaces of existence. Zang looks at life through absolute close-ups. A peaceful environment can only be looked at from a distance, but once one looks closely and intensely, everything changes. Zang’s work explores the world hidden underneath. The pictorial and material uncertainty of the things depicted injects a metaphysical unease into each scene.
