Yuyan Wang’s practice combines film, installation, and performance with a dimension of immersed experience. Taking inspiration from subjects as varied as horror movies, well-being culture, success science, and banality of everyday life, She works on the slight displacement of the pre-existing forms and tries to reconsider the contemporary systems of cruel optimism through a disintegrating process of abstraction.

Yuyan has been working under the name of 苦手 in reference to an ancient Asian word, which means literally ‘bitter hands’, without expertise in any skills.
