Wave, 2018

This series of risographs by Yuchen Chang were produced during a printmaking residency Chang undertook at BANANAFISH books, Shanghai in 2018. The prints, made by flattening textile upon paper, were inspired by gravity’s effects on the elements and recall the common practice of air drying laundry that can be seen suspended above the streets of Shanghai. They were shown at BANANAFISH at the close of her residency in a solo exhibition titled Service is Intangible by Nature, which explored the embodied relationship between text and textile, and the systems by which we attribute value to mundane materials and objects. The prints were also included in Gift Land, a curated exhibition of artist-made-gifts, shown in December 2019 at Printed Matter, New York.

Born and raised in China, Chang Yuchen is an artist based in New York. She was an artist in residence at the NARS x Governors Island Satellite Residency Program, MASS MoCA, Museum of Art and Design, Textile Art Center, and more. Her work has been shown or performed at numerous institutions including UCCA Dune (Qinhuangdao); Tai Kwun Contemporary and Para Site (Hong Kong); Abrons Art Center and Assembly Room (New York); Salt Projects (Beijing); and Kyoto Municipal Museum of Art (Japan). Chang teaches through the Center for Book Arts, Printed Matter, Asia Art Archive in America, CUE Art Foundation, and she has been a guest lecturer at Yale University, New York University, ArtCenter College of Design, School of the Art Institute of Chicago, University of the Arts, among others.
