Yang Zhenzhong

Male

b. 1968, Hangzhou


Yang Zhenzhong believes that life itself is in a state of constant repetition and, accordingly, repetition is a defining theme of his practice. Whether stripping massage chairs of their upholstery or appropriating works by other famous artists, Yang relies on everyday objects and familiar scenes to express profound ideas. With solo shows in Shanghai, Moscow, Amsterdam, Copenhagen and Birmingham, he has also been part of many group shows, and the Kochi-Muziris, Lyon, Moscow and Venice biennales.
