Trevor Yeung

b. 1988, Guangdong province, China

Trevor Yeung uses botanic ecology, horticulture, aquarium system and installations as metaphors that reference the emancipation of everyday aspirations towards human relationships. Yeung draws inspiration from intimate and personal experiences, culminating in works that range from image-based works to large-scale installations. Obsessed with structures and systems, he creates different scales of systems which allow him to exert control upon living beings, including plants, animals, as well as spectators.

Yeung has participated in Frieze London (2022); Singapore Biennale (2022); Kathmandu Triennale (2022); la biennale de Lyon (2019); “Cruising Pavilion” at the 16th International Architecture Biennale, Venice (2018); EVA International Biennale, Ireland (2018); 4th Dhaka Art Summit, Bangladesh (2018); and the 10th Shanghai Biennale (2014), in addition to exhibitions in institutions and galleries internationally. His work is in the collection of M+, Hong Kong; Centre Pompidou, Paris; Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris; Kadist Art Foundation, Paris and San Francisco; Stiftung Skulpturenpark Köln; and FRAC Alsace.

Yeung currently lives and works in Hong Kong.
