Yu Hong. Sakha World

The Lung Museum presents an exhibition of one of the most famous Chinese artists, Yu HongSakha World". The canvases reveal the author's world as a visual opera in four acts, showing several parallel universes, divided into separate periods: "Revival Time", "Portraits", "fifty mirrors" and "Growth Witness".

The name of the exhibition refers to “the world of Sakha”, a Buddhist expression that is of great importance for the personal thinking of the master and means “the world to be lived through”, a world that belongs to us and in which everyone who suffers is a prisoner of his desires. “The World of Sakha” is also the world of human resilience as an act of resistance, the desire to live in spite of adversity, overcoming them. In his works, Yu Hong restores personal and socio-historical memories through photography and painting, tracing the history of China over the past 30 years.

Yu Hong was born in Xi'an in 1966. At the age of 14, she began studying oil painting at the Central Academy of Fine Arts High School (CAFA) in Beijing and continued her studies at this school. She graduated from graduate school, and since 1988 she has been teaching at the Department of Oil Painting CAFA. Participant of numerous exhibitions.
