Yang-En Hume is a Sydney based artist whose practice spans installation, drawing, and painting. Her work seeks to destabilise hierarchies in art, institutions and society. She juxtaposes unexpected elements, such as the playful and macabre, or the abject and the miniature, to cross boundaries, disturb order, resist simplified notions of identity, and to create ambiguity and unease. The abject is referenced throughout her practice, in the form of the dismembered or fragmented body. Depicting broken bodies resists unambiguous ideals of gender, beauty and health. She often uses found materials and a crowded aesthetic, to resist the privileged position of the 'white-cube' gallery and the elevated status of certain materials.
