Yeni Mao

....
Yeni Mao utiliza un diverso repertorio artístico de escultura, fotografía, dibujo y video para presentar un punto de acceso a eventos históricos específicos. Su trabajo investiga la manera en la que estos eventos son representados como historia colectiva, y la relación de esta historia colectiva con la posición geográfica y social individual. Mao utiliza la distorsión de información para resaltar opuestos como autenticidad vs. mitología y archivo vs. memoria.

Yeni Mao (n. 1971, California) recibió su diploma en bellas artes de The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, y posteriormente estudio la fundición de metales en California y las industrias de la arquitectura y la manufactura en Nueva York. Sus exhibiciones individuales recientes incluyen “Regatta” en la Munch Gallery en Nueva York y “Whiskey Papa” en la galería Zidoun-Bossuyt en Luxemburgo. Mao ha sido mostrado en numerosas exhibiciones grupales nacionales e internacionales como la IX Bienal De Artes Visuales Nicaraguenses, Allegra LaViola Gallery, Andrew Edlin Gallery, DOB Hualamphong Gallery, Hionas Gallery, Maquis Projects y ROM for Kunst og Arkitektur. The Lijiang Studio y Red Gate Gallery en China, The Fountainhead Residency en Miami, OAZO-AIR en Amsterdam y Flash Atöyle en Turquía son algunas de las residencias en las que ha participado. El trabajo de Mao se ha publicado en The New York Times, Time Out New York, The Advocate, The Village Voice y el Bangkok Post.

Mao vive y trabaja en la ciudad de Nueva York. Durante 2015 será artista residente de Fundación Casa Wabi en Oaxaca, Mexico y debutará un cuerpo de trabajo basado en tres piezas cinematográficas de Genhis Khan en la Second Street Gallery de Virginia.

Yeni Mao uses a diverse artistic lexicon of sculpture, photography, drawing and video to present our access points into specific historical events. His practice investigates how these events are represented as collective history, and the relationship of this collective history to an individual geographic and social position. Mao utilizes the distortion of information to highlight oppositions such as authenticity vs. mythology and archive vs. memory.
