I am building a "hot tub" as an interactive space for the final show. Then what is quite funny happened. I have to upload our online show way before everything is finished and the project is operated. I worked really hard to present a piece that is unfinished, I believe everyone does. If you are interested in the concept and idea, please come and involve in the "hot tub" events from the 13-16th of July, at the Truman Brewery!
〇1🚀 Yuan Yihang
〇1🚀 is a multi-faceted artist who adapts playfulness, observation, experimentation, and self-exploration as keys to their practice. His practice is often associated with found objects, writings, and symbols, and keen on using these elements to convert the narratives of the spaces both violently or gently. His recent topic includes expressing individual struggles, social experiments and interactions, and visual metaphors of our society.
〇1🚀' practice is profoundly embedded in his early life experience, his cultural heritage, and his childhood trauma. His practice is dynamic, based on current moments of feeling and thinking. He seeks his practice as a pathway to sensing and understanding the social structures and urgencies and associating with wider and more profound resources and contexts to make chain-reacted influences. He aims to involve his audiences through participation using conviviality as the basis for interaction. This has been the foundation based on his cultural identity and personality.
Visual and active poetic, and playful experiments are the key faces of 〇1🚀's art, both shown in his large-scale installations and interactive-based intervention works. Participation and co-authorship are open to interpretation through ‘happenings’ and are both gallery-based and spontaneous.
