Yang Fudong graduated from the China Academy of Art, Hangzhou (1995). One of China’s best known contemporary artists, he has gained a major international reputation for his films and video installations, which have been shown regularly as part of major international survey exhibitions and one-person gallery shows across the globe. He has had more than 60 solo shows at some of the most acclaimed institutions and galleries and over 300 group exhibitions throughout the world. His artworks articulate multiple perspectives, investigating the structure and formation of identity through myth, personal memory and lived experience. Each of his works presents a dramatic existential experience as well as a poetic challenge.

The images in his three-channel video installation Flutter, Flutter… Jasmine, Jasmine (2002) are both an illustration of the words of a romantic song, and a commentary on it. We see a young man and woman in a large city, dreamily staring. Just like in the song, they reflect hope, idealism and emotional purity. But the transformation of the city proceeds rapidly, and it is a question whether their ideals and feelings will remain untouched by the changes within and between them as well as by those of the city around them
