Yan Jun live with Andy Guhl in St. Gallen, Switzerland, September 2014. Courtesy of the artist.
In August, we welcome Artist-in-Residence, Yan Jun who will expand on his Living Room Tour project during his residency. As a musician of electronic music, he always felt disappointed with sound system environments and venues in China. To face the reality of society, economy and culture, he creates nomadic sound environments of his own. Yan will invite musicians, artists and people with or without any “talent” to join with to create a platform in which “music should sound on its social pedestal”.
Yan Jun (China) works with sound and text. He has been presented at the Shanghai Biennale (2014) and received an honorary mention by Ars Electronica. As a poet he participated in the Rotterdam International Poetry Festival and the Berlin International Poetry Festival. He is the founder of subjam label.
