Yusi Zang.Yusi Zang.
Gertrude Studio Artist

2024 - 2026

Yusi Zang is a Beijing-born multidisciplinary artist based in Melbourne, working primarily with painting and sculpture. Her works reflect the challenges of assimilating into the local community while detached from her hometown. This condition of existence, despite its limitations, has also granted Zang a sense of liberation and creative freedom, establishing a wholly self-contained creative ecosystem. Zang’s works strive for a level of realism that either mimics or extracts from the reality inherent in the everyday objects she responds to. Using an approach that breathes new life into frequently overlooked or dismissed objects, at times abject in their invisibility, having a unique and self-aware slacker trompe l'oeil style.

Recent exhibitions include Yusi Zang: Paintings & Sculptures, Animal House Fine Arts (2023), Then Sharply Turns, Conners Conners (2023), Aotearoa Art Fair, Savage Garden (2023), Sometimes We Seek Truth in the Traces of Others, TCB (2022), Traces and Stains, Meanwhile Gallery (2021), Altered Routine, Yusi Zang and Andre Franco, Blindside (2019), Yawbus, Cathedral Cabinet (2019), Gertrude Street Projection Festival (2019), Flattening, C3 Contemporary Art Space (2019), Seeing is Forgetting, Bus Projects (2018)
