Xie Nanx­ing: Spices

China Pictorial (English) - - ON DISPLAY -

March 17 – May 23, 2018 Ul­lens Cen­ter for Con­tem­po­rary Art, Beijing

The ex­hi­bi­tion con­sists of seven ma­jor oil paintings cre­ated by con­tem­po­rary Chinese artist Xie Nanx­ing over the last two years, through which the artist ex­plores his own re­la­tion­ship with Eu­ro­pean art his­tory and iconog­ra­phy.

The works are set against a green wall as they ex­plore forms of beauty, time, de­sire, and other themes in an ex­per­i­men­tal paint­ing lan­guage. The ex­hi­bi­tion also in­cludes sup­ple­men­tary ma­te­ri­als such as sketches that Xie drew in prepa­ra­tion for the se­ries to elu­ci­date his cre­ative tra­jec­tory.

Xie Nanx­ing was born in 1970 in Chongqing. He now lives and works in Beijing and Chengdu. Since 1999, Xie’s work has been shown in ma­jor ex­hi­bi­tions at home and abroad, in­clud­ing Doc­u­menta XII (Kas­sel, 2007) and the 48th Venice Bi­en­nale (1999).
