Trevor Yeung

b. 1988, Guangdong province, China

Trevor Yeung graduated from the Academy of Visual Arts at Hong Kong Baptist University in 2010. Yeung’s practice uses botanic ecology, horticulture, photography 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 biennials and exhibitions including “la biennale de Lyon 2019” (Lyon, France, 2019);  “After Nature” (UCCA Dune, Beidaihe, China, 2018-2019); “Cruising Pavilion” at the 16thInternational Architecture Biennale (Venice, Italy, 2018); the 38thEVA International Biennale (Limerick, Ireland, 2018); the 4thDhaka Art Summit (Dhaka, Bangladesh, 2018); “The Other Face of the Moon” (Asia Culture Center, Gwangju, South Korea, 2017); “Soil and Stones, Souls and Songs”(Para Site, Hong Kong, 2017); Seal Pearl White Cloud” (4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art, Australia, 2016); “Adrift” (OCAT Shenzhen, China, 2016); “CHINA 8 – Paradigms of Art: Installation and Object Art” (Osthaus Museum Hagen, Germany, 2015); and the 10th Shanghai Biennale (China, 2014). His work is collected by Kadist Art Foundation and M+ Museum (Hong Kong).

Yeung currently lives and works in Hong Kong.
