The Polygon Gallery has announced that it will present an online discussion with Lu Yang.
On November 24, the Shanghai-based artist will discuss her yet-to-be-released video game, The Great Adventure of Material World,
"Mortality, androgyny, hysteria, existentialism, and spiritual neurology feed Lu’s jarring and at times morbid fantasies," reads the artist info posted on the Polygon Gallery website. "Also taking inspiration and resources from Anime, gaming, and sci-fi subcultures, Lu explores his fantasies through mediums including 3D animation, immersive video game installation, holography, live performances, virtual reality, and computer programming.
"Working at the cutting edge of new interactive technologies, Lu’s delirious new gaming work featured in this screening, wields an array of pop-cultural effects that absorb references from neuroscience, religion and popular culture to reveal structures of belief and consumption."
This event will take place on Zoom, and interested parties can RSVP here.
