Yang Yongliang: Cigarette Ash Landscape

Yang Yongliang is a chinese photographer and artist. His latest installation represents the tip of a huge cigarette sculpture hung vertically. The form of cigarette ash is taken from three-dimensional collages of photographs.

Below, a pile of ash, composed of small rectangular image cutouts, sits upon a length of fake grass scattered with artificial flowers.

In the background, you can see han shui painting and chinese calligraphy, on top of which yongliang has layered images of modern, urban life.

Seen in profile, the ash creates its very own landscape, reminding us of yongliang’s photography and digital artwork.
