Watch: Lu Yang’s Virtual Pantheon


This week’s visual theme: CREATURE FEATURES. Ghosts, demons, monsters, aliens, and indefinably uncanny entities, all from the annals of Chinese literature, film and art.

RADII was on-site at the opening of Shanghai artist Lu Yang’s latest solo exhibition, Encephalon Heaven, which launched with a cosplay party on the Saturday before Halloween at M WOODS museum in Beijing’s 798 art zone. The exhibition features a new pantheon of four gods that Lu roughly based on Hindu and Buddhist deities, as well as older works with some of her previously concocted creatures, like Uterus Man (2013) and Cancer Baby (2014).

The above video was shot and edited by Tu Lang for Radii. Thanks to Shanghai artists Duck Fight Goose and Soundspade for lending us their work for the soundtrack.
