Lives and Works: China
Miao Xiaochun received his bachelor’s degree in German Literature in China, and master’s degree in Art History before he started his studies in art in Germany. The exploration into humanities that stems from this academic background can always be felt in his work. In particular, his recent works that reinterpret masterpieces from the past through cutting-edge digital technology from a modern stance portray sketches of the contemporary society through the artist’s subjective interpretation within the image system of the masterpieces. They also confront the audience by bringing together and harmonizing elements that are conventionally conceived as being contradictory, such as historical images and modern images, classical paintings and contemporary art of new media, reality and virtual world, and East and West. The artist probes the audience with questions, by presenting a new world formed by his infinitely copied avatar, the symbolic figure devoid of gender and race.
