Yang Jinsong is an artist who attaches greater value to the process than the outcome. For him, the process is not merely creativity, but also the in-depth thinking and continuous overturning. This seems to prove that Yang Jinsong has the instinct of a behavioral artist. “Works” for him are merely an appropriate outcome of his actions. To be more precise, “works” are the traces of actions as experiences are transformed into forms and materials, thinking of objects is transformed into the object itself that enters the work and the composition of the work changes its properties so that the object is no longer a material object as it is, but a ferry of thoughts to the other side of things.
