Guan Xiao

  • In her video and sculptural works, Guan Xiao often addresses ideas of permanence, transformations, and perception. For the artist, our surrounding world is in constant process of change, never fixed, always influx. As such, no human being, object or phenomenon is static or definable. Rather our identity is shaped by what we are exposed to through our visual and auditory experiences. Guan Xiao’s intrinsic belief in the impermanence of things is somehow contradictory of our scientific principles that consider all phenomena predictable or known, and therefore potentially explained and categorized. Conceding equal importance to objects, people and phenomena, Guan Xiao’s videos often explore how our experience of browsing the Internet shapes our vision of the world and our own –always in transformation– identity.
