Trevor Yeung

b. 1988, Dongguan, 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, he creates different scales of systems which allow him to exert control upon living beings, including plants, animals, as well as spectators.

In 2024, Yeung will represent Hong Kong at the 60th International Art Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia. He is also shortlisted for the Sigg Prize 2023. Yeung has participated in the 24th Biennale of Sydney (Sydney, 2024), Singapore Biennale (Singapore, 2022), Kathmandu Triennale (Kathmandu, 2022), la biennale de Lyon (Lyon, 2019), EVA International Biennale (Dublin, 2018), the 4th Dhaka Art Summit (Bangladesh, 2018) and the 10th Shanghai Biennale (Shanghai, 2014). He will take part in the Lahore Biennale 2024, opening on October 5, 2024.

The exhibition will travel to Para Site (Hong Kong, on view from 16 March – 26 May, 2024) and Aranya Art Center (Beidaihe, on view from 27 October 2024 – 16 February 2025).
