Jing Ellen Xu: Flung out of space
November 1 - December 31Free
Das Schaufenster just opened Jing (Ellen) Xu’s exhibition “Flung out of space”.
Xu says about her practice that: Making art is the way to communicate with both my heart and the world surrounding me.
My art practice is a combination of sculpture, painting and video, creating dreamlike, fictional installations that disrupt reality and present more questions than they answer. I use artwork to invite viewers into everything that informs my life, identity, and sense of place.
I was born and raised in Inner Mongolia, China. My works have been influenced by the different cultural and ideological contexts between China and America. I use labor-intensive, repetitive methods to represent the history of Chinese working people and identity. Many of my works are imbued with cycles of time.
Flung out of space —I using painting and video, as medium to have conversations about time, space, reality and fantasy. I question and deconstruct my roles in both private and public space. Repetition and expansion are the main features of my installation and painting in this way, I give my works a vivid sense of life and mobility.
Please stop by the gallery as always 24/7 to see the exhibition.
