One of China’s most exciting contemporary artists, Yang Yongliang’s work combines the visual language of ancient Chinese scroll painting with digital technologies to create poetic yet disquieting works. The large scale projection Endless Stream (2017) depicts a classically sublime landscape that is contaminated by an endless stream urban development. This fantastical scene evokes feelings of empathy for the ancient mountains rising from the mist, slowing being consumed by human inhabitation.
