YANG LI/VE HUMAN MAS/CHINE is a music installation that allows artists to perform live in unexpected locations, subverting convert codes by taking the iconic out of context. The installation was co-designed by renowned architect Olaf Kneer and features an oversized trunk inspired by equipment cases used by bands on tours and contains a fully integrated system for musical performances using both light and sound.

Local creatives had an opportunity to chat with editors from a range of publications—including Dazed and Confused MagazineStyleZeitgeist, and Another Man.

Pharmakon was the first artist to plug into the YANG LI/VE HUMAN MAS/CHINE. Her performances are both visceral and confrontational and she has been a figurehead in the underground experimental scene since the age of 17. Pharmakon continues to be the main flag bearer for modern noise music.
