Beyond GOD and Evil - Enemies of Truth
Beyond GOD and Evil - Enemies of Truth extends from Beyond GOD and Evil series, selects photos from Dawn Breaking - A Museum Film Project. The new series deepens the practical significance of Nietzsche's quotations which the only script adopted during the filming. In early 2018, Yang Fudong finished the shooting of "Dawn Breaking - A Museum Film Project" in Long Museum (Westbund) Shanghai. He unfolds the process of filming as the presentation of the exhibition and the original artwork in the museum. He endeavours to break the way we see films and exhibitions as well as relations between artist and audience. The project will be continuously developing. The process is the film.
Yang Fudong was born in Beijing in 1971, and now lives and works in Shanghai. He graduated from the Department of Oil Painting, China Academy of Art in Hangzhou. He is among the most successful and influential Chinese artists today. Yang has started to create video works since the late 1990s. His works form a unique cultural visual interpretation through multiple cultural perspectives interlaced with experiences of space and time with photographs, film and installation. They are all characterised by multi-perspectives, exploring the structures and forms of identities in myths, personal memories and life experiences. Each work considers both a dramatic lived experience and a challenge. Yang Fudong has participated in several prestigious international art events including Documenta in Kassel (2002), the Venice Biennale (2003/2007), the Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art (2006) and the Lyon Biennale of Contemporary Art (2013).
