Lu Yang is a graduate of the China Academy of Art in the Master of Arts New Media department. She studied new media under Zhang Peili — commonly known as the father of video art in China. She uses biological and technological art to challenge the boundaries of art with her anti-humanistic approach.
Lu Yang’s works were presented within the video program of the Moscow biennale.
The selection of videos for the biennial programme included Wrathful King Kong Core (2011) and Moving Gods (2015). In both, Lu Yang investigates iconic religious symbols and transfers them to a present she sees as closely associated with science and technology. [Marie Egger]
