In-between

Trevor Yeung’s new solo exhibition at Blindspot Gallery, “In-between”, is conceived as a meandering walking path by a solitary wanderer in an anonymous park. Neither going east nor west, neither day nor night, neither belonging nor outcast, the wanderer has no particular destination or itinerary in mind, and instead strays to his own reveries. Yeung deepens his existing practice on ecology and botany by exploring a wider range of medium underneath the terrestrial plants and critters, utilising materials such as stones and minerals, soil and clay, dust and debris. The artist relays a ubiquitous yet idiosyncratic state of in-betweenness evident in the quotidian life of beings and the aspirations for meaningful relationships. About Trevor Yeung (b. 1988) 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. Yeung has participated in biennials and exhibitions including “Cruising Pavilion” at the 16th International Architecture Biennale (Venice, Italy, 2018), the 38th EVA International Biennale (Limerick, Ireland, 2018), the 4th Dhaka Art Summit (Dhaka, Bangladesh, 2018), “The Other Face of the Moon” (Asia Culture Center, Gwangju, South Korea, 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.
