Residencies Studio Sessions: An Awkward Introduction, Artist Talk by Trevor Yeung (Hong Kong), Artist-in-Residence

Subject

Description

What can butterfly palms, passion vines, and acanthus plants tell us about human relationships, everyday behaviours, and affective (r)evolutions? How do blooms, creepers, and phytomorphic decorations relate to subjectivities, moods, and processes of cultural signification? An amateur naturalist and a socially fugitive individual, Trevor Yeung has long been obsessed with the structural logic of systems. His practice—ranging from photography and sculpture to the creation of elaborate scenarios—detects and distils patterns of co-dependency, aspirational thrusts, and forms of vulnerability embedded in human and natural ecosystems. In this talk, the artist will reflect upon his long-term engagement with the natural world and his aesthetic strategies aimed at encoding personal experiences and emotional landscapes in plant-based installations. This talk will take place in the artist’s studio.
