Chen Yujun's practice centres around the process of exploring the complex cross-cultural phenomenon. Just like the process of drawing a mosaic, Chen uses images of various Asian cultures and Oriental icons together in order to create a parallel world, outside of the reality we are familiar with. He has worked on his "Asia Map" series for over a decade, during this journey the work evolved freely without the constraint of time or a set format. It is the process of assembling the artist's fragmented memories together to construct an entire world of psychological landscape.
