Wandering Landscape: Keychains Come Trough


As a long-term study of artists, "Wandering Landscape" focuses on the experiences of the Chinese diaspora through the juxtaposition of geopolitical relations and intimacy, sense of belonging, and relative time lag, involving photography, oral history, archiving and material reconstruction. From the body engineering reforms that questioned the post-Qing colonial reshaping of masculinity to the intimate picture of the Straits Chinese in exile in the Netherlands, Yang Weivani's artistic practice treats diaspora as geographical subjects, creating a series of mixed images through the layering of memories such as mythology, history, and personal landscapes.
