Xiong Jiaxiang 熊佳翔

Xiong Jiaxiang (b. 1991, Shanghai, China) focuses on mixed-media image installation and has long investigated the conditions and impact of image production. His works create dialogues with key works in art history and combine his own ideas with those of historically important artists, while contradicting them with his own practices.

In his recent works, Xiong Jiaxiang draws materials from the mundane and the everyday, focusing on the fluid relationship between the material reality and the virtual nature of images, bodies, and spaces, and presenting the paradoxical dilemmas of contemporary life from his understandings of affection and politics, data and the banality of life. Xiong Jiaxiang uses an ethereal, dynamic narrative approach to describe the world and constructs a virtual initiative to create images—a new sensual connection with the world. In his view, the “fracture” among images is the place where the poetics reside.

Xiong Jiaxiang received his MFA in Free Art Painting from the Academy of Fine Arts in Bremen, Germany in 2018.

The artist currently lives and works in Beijing.
