Frank WANG Yefeng



Frank WANG Yefeng is a transdisciplinary artist, researcher, and digital nomad situated in-between New York City and Shanghai. Initially trained as a sculptor, Yefeng’s interdisciplinary practice spans a wide range of media, including video installation, experimental 3D animation, painting, drawing, and writing. His art explores the experience of “in-betweenness” that arises from a nomadic transnational existence. Interweaving physical and digital realms, his projects critically examine fixed identity formations, the genealogies of racialized others, and the alienation of people and objects in dominant cultural and technological narratives. Yefeng’s storytelling features whimsical animated characters to challenge cultural norms. They confront and mock their historical stereotypes with playful language. Through uncanny inhumanism, they seek strategies for reimagining the diasporic self while scrutinizing the historical consumption of an othered representation.
