Lives and Works: Shanghai
Song Xi was born in China in 1983. He graduated with a B.A. from Dalian Light Industry Institute in 2006. In 2015, Song Xi won “Tomorrow Contemporary Sculpture Award” with his work “One Cubic Centimetre Tear drop”.
Song Xi pays special attention to the body as the medium of expression in his artistic creation. He believes that political attribute is buried in the intensity of ideology of socialised body. The sensuality of the body, the temperature derived from emotion and pain form fundamental support for his creation. Warmth, hidden in the works of minimalist style, creates certain unknown relationship among the physical, the emotional and the material. Often, "wrong" judgment happens due to unfamiliar cognition and dissociation of experience in the order of inertia, causing intentional damage to the emotion as well as the body. Song Xi hopes to establish new order based on the existing system when outputting art, in addition to exploring the relationship between art and society.
