About Yan Cheng
My work is currently situated at the intersection of art and science, with a particular interest in the relationship between the human and non-human. I entangle social, natural and cultural environments, staging events for the performance of nature. By approaching non human lifeforms and in vitro states of matter as actors, instead of being a mere backdrop, disrupts existing binary relations which separate nature - culture. My installations centre around performativity as a space for transdisciplinary biologies, technologies, evolution and chance happenings. The enactments become a metaphor for collective communication and interspecies coexistence.
