Yan Shi

Yan Shi, born in Shenyang, Heilongjiang Province, in 1975. He studied at the Photography Department of LuXun Academy of Fine Arts and Multimedia and Mixed Media Department at the Art College of Xiamen University. He now lives and works in Beijing. Yan Shi’s artistic practice is inclusive and unrestricted by media or materials. Yan’s profound observation of contemporary life is deeply rooted in examining, and dialogue with, art historical narratives. His artworks are presented in a straightforward manner, summoning the object itself to speak, and inviting the viewer into the unknown and open-ended exploration.

Yan Shi’s work has been included in exhibitions such as the Quanzhou Contemporary Art Exhibition, Quanzhou, 2018; “Parallax”, Institute of Contemporary Arts Singapore, 2013; “Phenomena and Situation Since 1985 III”, Guangdong Museum of Art, Guangzhou, 2008; “Thermocline of Art: New Asian Waves”, ZKM Museum, Karlsruhe, Germany, 2007; “The 6th Moscow Photo Biennale”, Moscow, 2006; “The 2nd Guangzhou Triennial”, Guangdong Museum of Art, Guangzhou.
