“If you don’t want to drown, be an ocean.” One Thousand and One Attempts to Be an Ocean reflects on the experience of not being able to see the world with depth perception. Made up of micro-events from “satisfying video” that swarm on the internet, the abstract narrative unfolds through an appropriation way by referring to trance and minimal music. It’s about a desire for groundless waves, blended with today’s inexorable entropy of our information societies.
Wang Yuyan (1989, China) is a film-maker and multidisciplinary artist living in Paris. She graduated from Le Fresnoy – National Studio of Contemporary Arts in 2020 and Beaux-Arts of Paris in 2016. She takes inspiration from the endless media production underpinned by industrial productivity. Her works oscillate between film and installation, often in an immersive perspective with a disintegrating abstraction process.
