Trevor Yeung (born in Guandong Province, China, in 1988, lives in Hong Kong) is a new art star on the East Asian sky, beginning to exhibit more regularly in Europe. He has had solo exhibitions in Hong Kong and China, Switzerland and France, and he has participated in large events such as the 10th Shanghai biennial in 2014 and the EVA International biennial in Limerick, Ireland, in 2018. This is his first exhibition in Finland.
Yeung’s work speaks of the emotional and behavioural conditions for human life in spatial installations incorporating photographs and objects (both crafted and found) but also plants and sometimes animals (usually live fish in tanks or shells from other aquatic creatures). He doesn’t tell stories but instead sets up situations for viewers to navigate both physically and mentally.
