About the Artist

Yi Lian

Yi Lian was born in Yichun, Jiangxi Province in 1987, completed his master degree from School of Intermedia Art, China Academy of Art in 2012 and now lives and works in Hangzhou.
Yi Lian’s works include images, art installations, photography, painting and so on. His works are often based on individual life experiences rather than purely abstract concepts or forms. His early works focus on the narrative of images, the construction of surreal scenes and the capture of absurdity in personal experience. In recent years, the key words of his works turn to ‘the other’, ‘communication’ and so on. Becoming aware of the complexity, impossibility and multiple layers of ‘communication’ with the other, the artist tries to obtain a path through art to connect with, understand and experience the other (person/object/life), and also to touch and know oneself once again. “Art is glamorous because of its ability to share information with the other and relate to more.”
