Artist Talk: Yan Wang Preston



7th July 2021







About The Event

Belfast Exposed invites you to an online Artist Talk with Yan Wang Preston. In this online event, Yan will be sharing and discussing her project Mother River. We are currently showcasing three of Yan's projects through Belfast Exposed Street View until the 17th July.

This event will be held online via Zoom. You can book your free ticket through the Eventbrite link below, which will contain a link to join us on Zoom.

The exhibition showcases three separate series from her earlier performance work, Hé – River Together, in which she touched and swam in the Yangtze River in China in order to have a bodily connection with her motherland. It then reviews her acclaimed project Mother River, for which she photographed the entire 6,211km Yangtze River at precise 100km intervals on a large-format plate camera. Finally, the exhibition tells the tree stories from her award-winning work: Forest which traces the journey of transplanted old trees in China while investigating the complexity of urban nature.
