Strong and deliberate presentation of the #performance #artist Yingmei Duan by Hanmi Gallery. This very poetic booth arrangement, in which leaves and twigs that the artist was sweeping in the video then seamlessly transferred into the exhibition space, gave us a sense of the artist’s presence. Later in the day we were lucky to meet lovely Yingmei Duan in person. Born in 1969 in China Duan was first influenced by legendary #beijingeastvillage #avantgarde art community. Later Duan moved to Germany to study performance under prof. M. Abramovic and filmmaker C. Schlingensief. Her thought provoking and emotional performance and #installation using her own body and dreams as an expressive medium, Duan draws viewer’s attention to cultural displacement and social #marginalization issues.
