> DESCRIPTION

Ye Nan (born 1984 in Hangzhou) engages us directly with great, sometimes imponderable questions. Phosphorous Red is made up of a series of graphic prints alongside an installation work in which he has perfected a technique of applying phosphorous liquid, like that used in the manufacture of matches, onto the hand-made paper. These bold images contain a wide range of references including space travel and colonization, the principles of chemistry and physics, nationalism, politics and rock music. He succeeds in drawing together this potentially improbable material into an invigorating and highly-legible series of manifesto like declarations.
