Yongqi Tang

Having studied and worked between China and America, Yongqi Tang has drawn influence from these drastically different cultures and ideologies. As such, the artist deconstructs her roles in private and public spaces, investigating through painting and drawing how social identities get constructed. Yongqi’s works examine our self-mediated images and how they relate to the broader human experiences of gender, sexuality and nationality. By blending allegories, myths and symbols from both Western and Chinese traditions, she playfully reinterprets the discourse around these fungible categories into which we are born.
