LU YANG
‘Hell’ in Berlin

Lu Yang
‘Welcome to Lu Yang Hell’

Société (Genthiner Strasse 36, 10785 Berlin) Apr.28–Jun 10, 2016

One of the standout shows of Gallery Weekend Berlin this year was Lu Yang’s follow-up to her 2016 show Delusional Mandala at Société (Vimeo link here).

‘Welcome to Lu Yang Hell’ is an assault on sense-identity. Hell here is an opulent info overload, data is religion, A.I. is unhinged, google images are the panopticon of the gaoler-prisoner, miasma is Miami and  resistance  art is futile. I kept thinking of Kanye West’s Monster track—but only the bits with Nicky Minaj.

And what is it is with women and giant spiders? I admit I’m too afraid to ask. #louisebourgeois

On October 28 Lu’s new show “Encephalon Heaven” will open at Beijing’s M Woods museum (Oct.28, 2017–Feb.11, 2018).
