YANG Tong

Tong Yang is interested in exploring the possibilities when faced with limitations. Celebrating the difficulties or troubles she encounters in life experience or during the artmaking process becomes vital content of most of her works. Usually, Yang does not use the same media or focus on a similar topic. Art for Yang is one of the ways to express her thought about the world and society. She is an adventurous person who likes to experiment with different materials that inspired her in daily life. She considers art as a way of discovering the various limits of life, and when working with each material, she meets them as if getting to know herself. Tong Yang was born in Gansu, China. She has lived in China, Hong Kong, Argentina, Australia, and Italy in the past few years.

楊桐喜歡從侷限中探索可能性。慶祝她在生活經歷中或在藝術創作過程中遇到的困難或煩惱成為了她大部分作品重要的內容。 楊桐的藝術創作沒有固定的媒體,也沒有固定的主題。對她來說,藝術是表達她對世界和社會認知的一種方式。 她是一個喜歡冒險的人,喜歡從日常生活中尋找觸動她的物料進而開啟實驗。楊桐認為藝術是一種發掘生活各種極限的方式,當處理每一種材料、認識每一種材料的同時她也在認識自己。 楊桐出生在中國甘肅,現居香港。曾在阿根廷、澳大利亞和意大利有過生活經歷。
