Meet the on-line Artist // Sixing Xu
Sixing Xu plans to work on her project “Materials (Footage)” during her residency at GlogauAIR. The project is inspired by a chance encounter of two Super 8mm reels, one from her last pre-COVID trip to Berlin, and the other a travelogue from a stranger shot in her hometown of Beijing. Through a juxtaposition of the films’ frames, she creates a new adventure story that explores the notions of freedom, global fluidity, and connectedness in relation to one’s ability to move within or from certain historical and political narratives.
The project will culminate in an installation consisting of sculptures, writings, and drypoint prints.
