Yan Xing creates multilayered works using different media, while referencing a variety of sources, from art and history to politics and literature. The artist describes his practice as a “unique system of integration,” which, at first glance, could be thought of as a practice of reconstruction and quotation. But Yan Xing sees himself as an artist in the avant-garde tradition, who understands art as a kind of game in which the players make their next move according to the rules and actions of their colleagues. So it is only natural that Yan Xing’s works refer to, appropriate, and refine the work of other artists who blazed the trail for him.
