“Creating art about intimacy is my way of questioning the cultural norms that I grew up with. It's a personal journey that challenges me to push past my own fears and insecurities, while trying to find meaning and understanding behind the motivations revolving around the concept of "Love".”

Liana Yang is rarely motivated by direct beauty but drawn to the aesthetics of social interactions and oddities we encounter in our daily experiences. Inspired by  the enigmatic and unseen aspects of relationships, her works explore personal memories and collective associations in contemporary culture.

By combining photography, video, sound, and found objects, Liana Yang’s practice entails her fascination with collecting personal stories and experiences. These are interpreted into mixed media artworks. The personal narratives are presented against the backdrop of contemporary culture; the works are carefully considered and presented with the intention for promoting public discourse in understanding the complexities of interpersonal relationships in relation to societal norms and pressures. She is interested in the intersections that shape human relationships with the online and physical environment.
