How to gather? Acting in a Center in a City in the Heart of the Island of Eurasia

Under challenging circumstances, the Moscow Biennale of Contemporary Art opts for a radical format and changes its structure: the biennale will be condensed into ten days. Artistic, discursive and reflective moments will shape the space. Located in the Pavilion No.1 of VDNKh, it is here that the Moscow Biennale will evolve, as a think tank in real time.

Biennale: Sept 22 - Oct 1, 2015
Documentary exhibition project: Oct 3 - Oct 11, 2015

She uses biological and technological art to challenge the boundaries of art with her anti-humanistic approach. 

Lu Yang’s works were presented within the video program of the Moscow biennale.

The selection of videos for the biennial programme included Wrathful King Kong Core (2011) and Moving Gods (2015). In both, Lu Yang investigates iconic religious symbols and transfers them to a present she sees as closely associated with science and technology.  [Marie Egger]
