Artist Statement



International artist born in Singapore and living in Switzerland. Inn-Yang Low e.h. has made many art exhibitions all around the world. The understanding of movement is the basis of his art from calligraphy to performance on large scale canvas. As the symbol of eternal movement and vital energy, the dragon is one of his most favorite pattern.

Frank Popper, Art critic, international curator and kinetic theorician, Paris, wrote in 2001 about Inn-Yang's art:
"Artworks or projects of Inn-Yang Low participate from both kinetic art tradition that anticipates virtual computer art and the other kinetic stream based on vital energy."

"Ses œuvres ou projets répondent à la fois à la tradition cinétique qui se veut annonciatrice de l'art technologique et virtuel et, d'autre part, au courant cinétique qui met l'accent sur l'énergie vitale."

Aline Dallier, Art critic, Paris,
wrote in 2001:

"Inn-Yang is not only a painter of traditional and revisited dragons, he is also a kinetician and a performer. How does he integrate these two different kind of contemporary art? The calligraphy he practices since he is very young is a natural way of thinking the different kind of movements and their art expressions in Kinetic. Performance has also connection with kinetic art because it places the body of the artist and the acting-spectator in the centre of the art minimizing for spiritual and social reasons the importance of the art object." (trad.G.P.)

"Mais Inn-Yang n'est pas seulement un peintre de dragons traditionnels ou réactualisés. C'est aussi un cinétiste et un performer. Comment s'est-il intégré, en apparence si facilement, à ces deux formes d'expression artistique contemporaines ? En ce qui concerne le cinétisme, nul doute que la calligraphie qu'il pratique depuis l'enfance l'ait conduit à penser le mouvement physique, mécanique et électrique comme étant au cœur même de l'art. En ce qui concerne la performance, elle présente en commun avec le cinétisme de placer le corps de l'artiste et celui du spectateur-participant au centre du phénomène artistique tout en minimisant l'importance de l'objet d'art conventionnel, pour des raisons tant spirituelles que sociales."
