Jade Yumang focuses on what queer form looks like through various visual strategies in relation to abstraction, beauty, phenomenology, Kantian indifference, and post-AIDS crisis ethos. He investigates this form primarily through performance, sculpture, and installation as a way to see how the body resists or submits through materiality and technique vis-à-vis obsessive acts, strict parameters, repetition, and forms of discipline. These constraints are pushed to the limit where things get blurry, messy, opaque, and unstable.
