Due to unforeseen circumstances, Guan Xiao is no longer able to travel to London to present.
ICA Head of Programme Katharine Stout presents on the work of artist Guan Xiao on the occasion of Guan Xiao: Flattened Metal in association with K11 Art Foundation (2016). This is followed by a Q&A with the curator Victor Wang.
Working mainly in sculpture and video, Chinese artist Guan Xiao (b.1983) explores how ways of seeing are now influenced by digital image circulation as an increasingly dominant source of knowledge and information exchange. In various works and installations she endeavours to expand the aesthetic and cognitive possibilities for how identity and meaning are assigned and understood.
