Shen Yuan

Shen Yuan, who now lives in Paris, is emerging as one of the most important and innovative artists working in Europe today. Over the past two decades, she has developed a distinctive aesthetic idiom, that draws on contemporary Chinese arts practice and ideas but, at the same time, communicates eloquently with the Western context of contemporary art. Using sculpture and installation, Shen Yuan’s work ranges from monumental site-specific interventions – within and beyond the gallery space – to intimate visceral objects using organic and man-made materials such as meat, fingernails, hemp and ceramics.

Published on the occasion of her first major solo exhibition, this fully illustrated monograph will visually document her career to date, with images of both realised and unrealised projects.
