Yingmei Duan is a performance artist at home around the world. She has made her name in numerous international exhibitions and her works have been exhibited in the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, Venice Biennale and Hayward Gallery in London amongst many others. Her art is inextricably linked to her personality and presence in the here and now. She touches the hearts of people she meets, embodying humanity as a person and in her performances.
To coincide with Yingmei Duan’s 3-month performance at the 2014 Sydney Biennale, Lehmanns Media published this trilingual monograph on Yingmei’s diverse oeuvre. It marks the first overview of her performance and performance installation between 1995 and 2013.
Contributors include Katie Hill, Jürgen Bernhard Kuck, Claudia Lamas Cornejo, Jonas Stampe, Melanie Martin, Helmut Lorscheid, Stephanie Rosenthal.
