about this work
Yang’s light sculptures are results of studio-based production in the classical sense, engaging the artist in a more spontaneous and intimate way of working, while larger scaled installations are executed according to a firm plan prior to its installation. Often appropriating everyday life objects from specific contexts ranged low, raw, ethnic, local, etc., she observes the structures of a society and playfully subverts the conventional usage of the mostly industrially manufactured material.
