Sensitive emotions have always been Yao Cong’s inspiration. He intends to explore the existing modes of gender, sexuality and identity politics. Through reconfiguring the language of desire, anxiety, and authority into a new fluid, hybrid structure, he creates immersive works which employ hazy, poetic and sharp aesthetics by diverse media such as moving image, physical theater, installation and photography in constant attempts and explorations.
The artist received his BA in Intermedia Art from China Academy of Art in 2014, and his MA in Fine Art from Royal College of Art, London, in 2017.
His video installation “Under Blue” (Single Video, Colour/Sound, 6’38”, 2015) is presented as part of The Beholder group show taking place between October 24-29 2017 at SomoS Art House.
