“There are no facts, only interpretations.” Friedrich Nietzsche
Yiwei Gallery is pleased to present the American debut exhibition of Chinese artist Ruby Leyi Yang who expresses her ideas on Nietzsche’s ‘perspectivism,’ a form of artistic nihilism that maintains that truth can no longer exist in our age of “alternative facts.”
Inspired by the Greek Myth “Echo and Narcissus”, Yang wants to lead an open discussion about love. Combining paint, glass, fragmented text and print materials, into a matrix of meaning, or not, Yang created numerous entries to abstract and distorted love stories. Her visual and textual narrative can be read as empty or full, inspirational or dull, fervent or dispassionate, depending on the personal histories and emotions that we, her audience, bring to the work.
Ruby Leyi Yang (b. 1994, China) lives and works in Bay Area. She graduated with a BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2017, and an MFA at San Francisco Art Institute in 2020. Hers works have been included in group exhibitions and Film Festivals in Chicago, New York, San Francisco, Missouri, and Beijing.
