Yang Luzi, 31, majored in philosophy during her undergraduate study at Harvard University before receiving a master's degree in the art of cinematic creation from California Institute of the Arts.

Yang, born in Hangzhou of Zhejiang province, lived and worked in the United States and Germany, making videos and writing sci-fi stories, and she holds experimental courses and workshops at colleges.

Because of her cross-disciplinary academic background and travel experience, Yang's video works are interwoven with different historic dimensions.

Yang's eponymous exhibition, set to open at Beijing's Ullens Center for Contemporary Art on June 9, will show movies shot on 16 mm film.

In a poetic narrative, her works convey a fatigue of being self-indulgent, a desire to find the truth of history and examines the relationship between the human world and nature.

The exhibition, which will run through Aug 12, is the latest in the gallery's New Directions series which UCCA launched in 2005 to promote the country's most promising artists.
