William Yang: Self Portraits
5 August – 8 October 2017
William Yang is best known for his autobiographic performance pieces, produced since the late 1980s and often performed on stage with large projected images and music.
A narrative runs through these shows and his self-portrait photographs recreate this story. He will often write his story directly onto the prints
William Yang: Self portraits features a series of striking images in which the artist charts his childhood in North Queensland, his time in Sydney where he came out as a gay man, his search for identity and his trips to China. More recent images are meditations on family and mortality.
