Zhixuan is a Chinese sculptor based in China and the UK. He received his BA from the China Academy of Art in 2015 and MA from the Sculpture department at the Royal College of Art.
Grounded in socialistic public art, he devise an algorithm that processes the fundamentals of art making through a series of Chinese and non-Chinese art-world valorisations. What he calls ‘bluffing structures’ are wry and well observed; asking questions of artistic strategies of authentication. In this process he uses his own fictional tales as the primary vehicle for critical engagement with and expression of his “Incorresponding Aesthetics”.
Woven into this quite strategic and cynical generative process, culturally resonant metaphors, and discovering techniques of making that are intuitive, pleasurable and inventive.
