YU HONGLEI

1984

Yu Honglei draws inspirations from everyday objects that he collects, which suggest and create a range of discursive new possibilities. Yu’s work often conveys a strong narrative that results from making visible the concept of ‘recurrence’ – a daily phenomenon and a way in understanding a revelatory sense that inhibits both life and art. He was born in Inner Mongolia (China) and now lives and works in Beijing.
