Born in 1974 in Xupu, Hunan Province, Shu Yong is best known for his installation of translucent ‘bricks’ containing Chinese and English phrases derived from Google Translate, shown at the 2013 Venice Biennale. A multi-disciplinary artist, he has worked in sculpture, performance, installation and photographic media, often returning to his favourite theme and image of the bubble – whether in the form of gigantic pairs of impossibly voluptuous sculpted breasts, hyper-realist paintings, mass bubble-blowing events, or his series of photographs of Pearl River Delta entrepreneurs and businessmen pictured in their offices, surrounded by iridescent soap bubbles. Shu Yong lives and works between Guangzhou and Beijing.
