Chin Chih Yang is a multidisciplinary artist. He studied at Parsons School of Design (BFA, 1986) and Pratt Institute (Master of Science, 1994). He currently resides in New York City.

Yang’s work addresses society’s efforts to protect itself, both physically and psychologically, against long-term catastrophe resulting from pollution, surveillance, isolationTemplate:Disambiguation needed, quarantine, and religious/political/social intolerance. His interdisciplinary practice combines found materials, video projections, photography, and his own body to make interactive performances that spotlight ways forward. In an interview conducted by the New York Foundation for the Arts, Yang said: "An indoor gallery space always reduces audience interaction to some extent, because viewers have to make their way to a particular space to see a work. I try to set things up so that people can interact naturally with my work, whether in a gallery or an unmarked public setting—to best reach people and communicate something."[1]

Work

Yang’s work addresses society’s efforts to protect itself, both physically and psychologically, against long-term catastrophe resulting from pollution, surveillance, isolation, quarantine, and religious/political/social intolerance. The modern world, as Yang conceives it, is a graduated mixture of anxiety and entrancement. 21st-century products can do wondrous things, but producers and consumers alike wantonly discard waste. He explores such short-sighted practices by combining found materials, video projections, performance, and his own body to make art that spotlights ways forward. He likes to collaborate with other artists to create work which deals with the issues affecting individuals and, by extension, specific communities as well as society at large. Incorporating a touch of irony, his art helps us become better acquainted with the frightening side of human nature, signaling experimental and creative ways to view the planet and ourselves.
