Du Yan 杜岩
born 1977, Beijing
Du Yan (b. 1977, Beijing) translates his sensitivity to the overlooked and ordinary into experimental videos and site-specific participatory works. An MFA graduate from the Department of Experimental Art at the Central Academy of Fine Arts, Du studies the relationships between individuals and society and interrogates human behaviour as part of his critique of social conventions and etiquette. With artist Lv Ying, Du has held dual solo exhibitions ICI (2015) and Imaginary Enemy (2010) at Li-Space, Beijing.
