Artist & Work
b. 1983, Leizhou
Hu Xiangqian’s performance-based videos are inspired by his immediate surroundings and contemplation of what it means to be an artist. With a keen eye for the absurd, he highlights contrasts and amplifies minor incidents into major signifiers. Hu has had solo shows in Beijing, Guangzhou and Darwin, and been part of group shows in Auckland, Doha, Paris, Shanghai, San Francisco, Havana, Istanbul, Hong Kong, Bern, among others. He is recipient of the 10th Art China Consortium Young Artist of the Year award.
