artist(s)C. Spencer Yeh
In Yeh’s first solo museum exhibition, he transforms the gallery into a multi-sensory experience with a multi-channel sound and video installation. The show includes a reel of recent video projects, such as Buck and Judy—a music video created for the renowned rock group Deerhoof—which explores animation conventions and stream-of-consciousness narrative. It also features a recording, developed in collaboration with artist Amy Granat, which is presented in a unique listening chamber in the space.
Yeh was born in 1975 in Taipei, Taiwan, but lives and works in Cincinnati. He is best known for evocative vocal performances in his project, Burning Star Core. The artist studied Radio, Television and Film at Northwestern University in Chicago. He has worked with a variety of musicians including G.X. Jupitter-Larsen, Hair Police, Wolf Eyes, and Lo-Vid. His work has been shown nationally and internationally in venues such as Issue Project Room in New York, the Ullens Center in Beijing, and the Frieze Art Fair in London.
