b. 1989, China
In 2014, Yang Mushi graduated from the sculpture department at the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing. He currently lives and works in Shanghai and Beijing. His most recent works use industrial raw materials such as wood, foam, metal, stone and mud. These works are sharpened and shaped into sculptural forms that emphasize the material properties of the work giving ordinary material an extreme element.
Within these dignified forms hides violence, danger, and fragility. Here, Eastern meditative rites are transformed into artistic experiments that reflect the artist’s perceptions and understanding of action, body, time, and life.
