Xiaoze Xie: Confrontation and Disruption
Xie is an unusually alert observer of the harsh realities of present-day politics around the globe and how these realities are depicted in Western and Chinese newspapers and social media.
"This is a lengthy span of history and memory. Then coming back to this exhibition, time is shortened to merely one day. Like a daily newspaper in today’s media. In the beginning, I was painting a silent pile of newspapers, like a still-life, lying on the shelves of the library." - Xiaoze Xie
