Jade Yumang examines how queer optics permeate into culture, and how that is absorbed, embodied, repeated, and eventually materialized into deviating forms through various techniques to convey notions of phenomenology, affect, and “queer” as a process. This strategy is usually executed through three-dimensional, site-specific installation, and performative work as a way to see how the body resists or submits through materiality and technique vis-à-vis obsessive acts, strict parameters, and discipline. Jade looks at flickers of resistance by outlining historical amnesia, myths, scandal trials, obscenity laws, love, kinship, joy, filmic tropes, and pornography. Jade kindles these moments through meticulous techniques and creates abstract shapes that initially originate from a corporeal source. Typically, these ideas are tackled through a large series to tease out their formal qualities with the context that repetition creates differences and asserts a constant change. Jade primarily uses fiber techniques because of its reliance on tension and force to create materials that are strong and resilient, while being soft and pliable.
