Yang-En Hume is a Sydney based artist whose practice spans installation, drawing, and painting. She juxtaposes unexpected elements, such as the playful and macabre, or the abject and the miniature, to cross boundaries, resist simplified notions of identity, and to create ambiguity. The fragmented body is referenced throughout her practice as a metaphor for human alienation and to resist unambiguous ideals of identity and gender. Yang-En 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.
