Stolen Time

Stolen Time (Materials series)

using peeling paint from wall, pieces of someone’s house, abandoned things from street.




Yang’s Materials series are an amalgamation of the diverse, the distant, and the disregarded. Formed of the lost fragments of urban life that Yang rescues before their inevitable disappearance – remnants of a building’s outer walls, scraps of wallpaper from an interior, the remains of antique tiles – these often silent, ignored objects are here magnified from the mundane, framed to acknowledge the immensity of the intimate.
(...) Yang’s works, however, show how the past, present and future are fused in the very materiality of walls.

- Rafael Schacter, 2017
