Hongjie Yang’s work explores the interconnectedness between humans, nature and the cosmos, understanding all levels of existence to be structured analogically and to be equal in detail. Together, those elements form an interdependent whole and Yang works specifically with the resulting in-between spaces, pursuing a corresponding idea of oneness. Yang received a Masters Degree in contextual design from Design Academy Eindhoven in 2015. He is based in the Netherlands.
His work has been exhibited at Centre Pompidou, France (2019); Centre Pompidou x West Bund Museum, China (2020); Design Museum Holon, Israel (2020); CID Grand Hornu, Belgium (2019, 2021); Museum Kranenburgh, the Netherlands (2018); MARTa Herford Museum, Germany (2016); Het Nieuwe Instituut, Rotterdam (2014, 2016); Van Abbemuseum, the Netherlands (2014, 2015), among others.
