Hu Yun is an artist currently based in Melbourne.
In his practice, Hu Yun revisits historical moments in order to provide alternative readings, a process that also informs the artist’s self-reflection on his native and personal ties.
His selected solo exhibitions include Image of Nature (Natural History Museum, London, 2010); Our Ancestors (Goethe Institut, Shanghai, 2012); Lift with Care (AIKE Shanghai, 2013) and Narration Sickness (AIKE Shanghai, 2016). His works have also been exhibited at the Power Station of Art (Shanghai), Centre Pompidou (Paris), and Times Museum (Guangzhou). Hu Yun has participated in the 4th Guangzhou Triennial (2012), 11th Gwangju Biennale (2016) and 6thSingapore Biennale. He is working on a new project commissioned by the coming Asia Pacific Triennial (APT10).
