Sixing Xu


Sixing Xu makes works that exist as sculpture-text duos, interweaved with printmaking elements. Intrigued by the infra-ordinary, Xu attempts to dig out the possible relationships between individual subjects and their situated reality. She takes banal and peripheral indicators in life and treats them as complex and open sites for nuanced narratives, often incorporating a set of 9 characters. In entangling the temporal nature of a written story and the spatiality of objects, these narratives look for uncharted paths, or systems of knowing, to ponder our lived experiences in relation to a world sometimes fixated by the default historical, ideological, and linguistic axes and storylines.
