Yuanze Che is an artist who currently works in London. From 2021 he attended the Royal College of Art for his MA.Yuanze Che's work involves the media of performance art, sculpture, installation and photography, and attempts to explore the limitations of industry and artefacts through the reconfiguration of the contemporary industrial landscape, and the connection between the body, habitat and man-made space through the reconfiguration of the architectural construction .
- Discipline is a representation of an archaeological find that shows three phases of discovery: excavation, forgery and display. A number of ceramics ‘artefacts’ based on clothing shop accessories are shown with the "forged artifacts “desk and a number of paintings made by impressing the steel plate with these artefacts. The artefacts themselves are modelled on shirt collar stiffeners, plastic tags, and brackets used in the display and packaging of clothes in designer retail outlets.

In the past, my main focus has been on the impact of man-made space on habitat, exploring how urban space affects our connections and spirit of place, inspired by the environment in which I grew up. After a period of environmental change the context of the past work has been lost, the low and traditional housing in central West London has caused a solitary traveller to lose his context. The new practice begins with a reflection on my past work, and cultural hybridity emerges as the first concern in this phase of my work, as I repeatedly experience the ambiguity of contemporary culture, and the dominance and capriciousness of powerful cultures in my frequent travels and experiences of internationalisation. This has given me a vision of how we will define the chaotic and diverse culture of this time. I know that at the end of the last world many practitioners gave their answers, but with the advance of the industrial landscape and the retreat of globalisation the confusion of cultural definitions has taken a subtle turn.
The element of the transitional object is coming to my attention, and there are many 'habitats' between the industrial landscape and the industrial landscape that have not been addressed and defined, 'habitats' (neglected industrial aids) that are everywhere supporting the vast industrial system and being In a globalised world, there are no cultural definitions or names. These creature-like components have been abandoned in the fast pace of contemporary life, often ignored by consumers. This idle 'habitat' allowed me to feel a gap in the standardised and formatted industrial landscape and to explore the possibilities of cultural definition and industry, the body. As an initial experiment, "Discipline" has given me many different perspectives, and the experimentation with industrial interstices continues.
