YIWEN YAO ON THE ROAD

On the Road was shot from the rear window of my car as I travelled around Australia over the past two years. The raw footage from a single, constant camera angle exposes every bump and pothole in the road as the car ambles on with dirt and dust flying up from under the tyres.

Art Exhibition previously on at Centre for Contemporary Photography (CCP) in Australia.

This isolated landscape offered the opportunity to re-engage with the natural world. This is a record of my experience as a Chinese artist driving through the vast and diverse Australian terrain. On the Road provides a platform for the landscape to tell its own stories.
