About the Item: Charles Yuen’s discoveries are often of ambiguous domains populated by silhouetted figures engaged
in mysterious activities involving books, rocks, clouds, trees, snow, pointing, and juggling. His figures
could be school boys, musicians, shamans, animated shadows, anonymous individuals, or spirits.
Sometimes their arms hang down to the ground, reminding us of our distant ancestors, the apes, from
whom we split off around 7 million years ago in Africa. It is a world that exists apart from ours, yet
speaks to us about our anxieties, such as climate change, the fear of others, and our relationship to
science and knowledge. We are not sure how time is measured in Yuen’s worlds. - excerpt of essay by John Yau
