Yifan Jiang
One Sunday Morning
Animation, 13:12 minutes
The animated short chronicles the events followed by humanity’s sudden loss of language on one unsuspecting Sunday morning. Told from the perspective of two protagonists originating from opposite sides of the world, the Fable-Esque tale is a thought experiment exploring the limits of language and human empathy.

YIFAN JIANG is an NYC-based, Canadian artist, born and raised in Tianjin China (1994). She is a project-based artist, who works across painting, animation, sculpture, and performance. Drawing on strategies of pataphysics and magical realism, Jiang constructs images and narratives by weaving together personal, quotidian moments with idioms of philosophy, history, and science.
