YANG Feng Yu Wendy

Yang Feng Yu is an artist born in Beijing who came to Hong Kong in 2014 for her Bachelor’s Degree in Visual Arts. She has been studying and living in Hong Kong for more than four years.

Hong Kong is Yang’s source of creation in recent years. She has a complex feeling towards this city. On one hand, Yang tries to overcome differences in region, culture and language. On the other hand, she is naturally unaccustomed to communication and building relationships with people, as she likes to be a distant witness rather than a participant. Both sides of her personal character and their contradictions show in her works.

For each art piece she made, Yang is eager to discuss and talk about her inspirations and the art-making process. She enjoys recording the process and showing it on the work. She believes artists should be honest about their making process and appreciate the change of ideas through time. Yang makes her artwork touchable so that the audience can have a closer look at drafts, touch the texture of different materials or even smell it.

楊豐羽是一位生於北京的藝術家。她於2004年來港修讀視覺藝術學士學位,距今已近五年。

香港一直以來都是她的靈感來源。面對香港,豐羽有著很複雜的情感:她試圖瞭解人們,渴望跨越文化、地域、和語言的不同以作溝通。同時,她亦害怕與人產生聯繫。相比起參與者,她更願意成為旁觀者。豐羽的作品中,便反映了這兩種性格和它們之間的矛盾性。

豐羽願意談論她作品的靈感來源以及製作的過程,她享受藝術品成形的過程,並希望把這個過程呈現出來。她希望作品是可觸碰的:人們可以近距離接觸和觀察作品的材質,感受紋理甚至氣味。

This is a self-portrait of my five-year study in Hong Kong.
I have been entangled with myself and unwilling to face this unfamiliar space.
I made a cocoon and lived cautiously inside.
However, the suffocation it brings has always stayed with me.
I tear it, it wraps around me.

What would we be like?

這是我留學香港五年來的自畫像。
我一直和自己糾纏著,不願意去面對陌生的環境。
我製造了一個看不見的罩子,在裡面小心謹慎地生活。
然而它帶來的窒息感,一直伴我左右。
我撕破它,它纏繞我。
我們又會怎樣?
