Viewing LuYang: LuYang NetiNeti

Immerse yourself in the multi-sensory world of Chinese artist LuYang at London’s Zabludowicz Collection. Their critically acclaimed solo show, which has been extended until 12 March due to popular demand, features a new video commissioned by the Zabludowicz Collection as well as a film centring on the artist’s avatar Doku and an interactive retro-futuristic arcade space in which visitors can explore LuYang’s investigations into the human body and mind through reimagined games such as Space Invaders.

Inspired by the cultures of anime, video games and sci-fi, LuYang combines Buddhist philosophy with aspects of neuroscience and digital technology to explore complex themes such as life, death, religion and the physical. His works are at once arresting and perplexing, raising questions around human existence, identity and purpose.

LuYang’s practice doesn’t shy away from meaty topics — or from destabilising established binaries like good and bad, life and death. It’s no surprise then that this is a visually challenging show that will keep the cogs turning long after you’ve left the building.
