Meng-Yu Yan is a photomedia artist based in Sydney, best known for their creation of mystical dreamscapes and haunting self-portraits. Expanding upon their photographic background, their work encompasses a variety of mediums including video, installation, aquaria, performance, sculpture, and projection. Yan seeks to challenge the idea of the photograph existing only in two-dimensions, breaking down boundaries between image and reality. The work is characterised by an obsession with mirrors and the superstitions that surround them. As a result, Yan’s work is animated by reflections, doppelgangers, and parallel realities. They received first-class Honours at UNSW Art & Design for the body of work “Black Mirror” and will debut their first solo exhibition at Dominik Mersch Gallery on the 26th of May 2017.
