Yan's Forest series are being shown in a new group exhibition The Art of Trees, Gund Gallery at Kenyon College, Ohio, USA. The gallery's introduction reads as such:
'The Art of Trees reveals the many resonances, forms, and relationships of trees. Exploring themes of restoration and destruction, community and isolation, location and identity, and fragile temporalities, the artists featured in the exhibition experiment with a range of mediums, and even use trees as creative collaborators to express our essential and inseparable bond with these guardians of the earth. The Art of Trees invites an interdisciplinary dialogue about personal, local, and global relationships to the environment, while simultaneously drawing attention to interactions between trees themselves, the communities they form, and their resilience despite human interference.
Artists include: Anne Appleby, Matthew Brandt, Edward Burtynsky, James Balog, James Chronister, Oliver Dorfer, John Gerrard, María Elena González, Laura McPhee, Laura Plageman, Yan Wang Preston, Jennifer Steinkamp, Joel Sternfeld, and Hiroshi Sugimoto.'
