COMA is pleased to share the news that Lu Yang will be presenting a major new solo exhibition at the Zabludowicz Collection in London for autumn 2022.
The exhibition, titled ‘LuYang NetiNeti’, will run from 22 September 2022–12 February 2023 and will be his first solo show in the UK. 2022 also marks 15 years since the Collection opened its space on Prince of Wales Road, Camden. The exhibition will feature the world premiere of a new Zabludowicz Collection commission, alongside multiple immersive moving image installations, an interactive gaming space with the feel of a retro arcade, and a screening room filled with a ‘greatest hits’ of the artist’s videos from across the last decade. Visitors will be invited to step into the sensory experience that is Lu Yang’s artistic universe.
Lu Yang’s challenging and unsettling work destabilises the divisions between past and future, human and machine, and life and death, reflected in the title of the exhibition, which incorporates the Sanskrit expression ‘Neti Neti’, which means “not this, not that”, or “neither this, nor that”. Immersed in the cultures of anime, video games and sci-fi the artist’s wildly engaging and darkly humorous projects are all-consuming in their visual and sonic intensity. Lu Yang combines aspects of traditional spiritual belief with motifs from science and medicine to investigate the mysteries and mechanics of the human body and mind.
