UTERUS-MAN

The shape of a woman’s uterus is like the silhouette of someone standing with their arms open. This resemblance is what inspired the character Uterus-Man. The pieces of its armour correspond to parts of the human uterus.

The androgynous Uterus-Man sustains an ambiguity about his gender. The source of his superpowers lies in the singular ability of his uterus to reproduce. This piece by LuYang looks at gender, the classification of species, genetic selection and evolution.

DELUSIONAL MANDALA

With his piece Delusional Mandala, LuYang creates a digital, asexual human simulator in his image. This piece takes a close look at neuroscience, which has always fascinated the artist. The work is a reflection by the artist on his process, past, present and future. With Delusional Mandala, LuYang simulates the fantasy of repeatedly harming his body and his work.

This new series of pieces (the first of which was Moving Gods) is a departure from LuYang’s past work. Here the artist uses the method of the mandala to meditate, practice and delicately build, using different means, this delusional mandala.
