Guan Xiao

° 1982

Born in , lives in Beijing ().

The question of the individual is central to Guan Xiao’s art, particularly the challenges of how one should not only navigate but also harness the logic of time, the speed and influx of technology, the changing understanding of materiality, and the burden of history. The complex and vivid aesthetic of her works in various media, including sculpture and video, could be considered as deliberations on these conditions, where instant knowledge about the world can provide a myriad of inspirations and influences. Looking to represent the artist’s own liminal space as being locally rooted and globally connected, Guan’s highly experimental work functions as an abstraction, formed by synthesising numerous references from across time and geographies.
