Art Projects Gallery is delighted and honored to have the opportunity to present New York based Chinese artist Wang Yefeng’s inaugural gallery solo exhibition, titled “iGeneration”.
Prior to this, Yefeng’s cutting edge works have mainly been exhibited only in museums and other prestigious academic venues. These include the Co-prosperity Sphere Culture Center in Chicago, El Museo Cultural de Santa Fe, Xuzhou Museum of Art China, The Museum of Luxun Academy of Art (Shenyang, China) and 99 Art Space at Shanghai University.
An innovative artist using the digital media and currently leading the Digital Media Program at Rhode Island College as an Assistant Professor, Wang Yefeng’s works feature virtual worlds and imaginary characters created by the artist to raise issues about the real world that are close to his heart. The “iGeneration” solo exhibition showcases two of his important video installation works, “Well-Disciplined Kids” and “A Figure”.
“Well-disciplined Kids” is a 6-channels video art (also available in limited edition Archival Pigment Print mounted in Diasec) made in MAYA virtual modeling and animation program. The series feature dehumanized “made in China” children, devoid of facial expressions, personalities and emotions. As a way to reinforce his own identity and seeing himself to be one of the children, the artist digitally mapped his own face and applied it as a facial texture onto the child characters. The juxtaposition of the children characters
