In Visual Yu, Tianzhuo Chen portraits a character stemming from a new body of work developed for a performance in collaboration with electronic musician Aïsha Devi. In this video work, Chen mixes his well versed knowledge of religious iconography from Buddhism, Hinduism, Christianity, and Shamanism; subculture, underground cultures, drag and rave; popular culture, anime, hip hop and electronic music; and dance performance, such as Japanese Butoh and Vogueing. The juxtaposition of these elements allows him to give the audience an experience that transcends both superficial states of the body and spirit. Ultimately arriving at, what the artist refers to as a “state of madness”.
