Artist Profile

Born: 1989

Hometown: Guizhou, China

Based in: Beijing

Zhang Xioli was born in 1989 in Guizhou, China. She received the Ms. Chu Lam Yiu Scholarship and moved to Hong Kong in 2008 to pursue higher education at the Chinese University of Hong Kong, where she received her BA with first honours in Fine Arts and Biology in 2014. During the graduation show, she received Y.S Hui Fine Arts Award and Wucius Wong Creative Ink Painting Award. She is now pursuing graduate study at the Central Academy of Fine Arts.

In her early series, Zhang’s works replaced elements in Chinese landscape painting – trees, mountains, rocks and figures – with depictions of Lego bricks, as a contemporary way to create dialogues with tradition. In the “Boxed Landscape” series, Zhang presented surreal landscapes inside small containers, using the traditional style of gongbi ink painting to depict memories and experiences. Particularly, her boxed landscape series correlates to the “subdivided flats” housing problem in Hong Kong, which the artist experienced while studying in Hong Kong. Her current series "Private Collection" is inspired by the concept of the Cabinets of Curiosities (Wunderkammer, 15-18th century), incorporating astronomy, physics, physiology, molecular biology, and even mathematical concepts. The small, boxed objects allow a window into the artist's imagination while expressing wisdom, poetry, and beauty.

Her recent important group exhibitions include Youth Will: Beijing Youth Art Biennale, Today Art Museum, Beijing, 2016 and Fresh Trend, Hong Kong City Hall, 2014. Her works have also been exhibited at several international art fairs including; Ink Asia 2017; Off Course Art Fair 2015, Brussels; and Fine Art Asia 2014, Hong Kong. Alisan included Zhang in the 2017 group exhibition Desiring: Post 97 Hong Kong Ink Art; the 2018 women's exhibition HOPE; and with sell-out success at Art 021 (2018) and Art Basel HK (2019).
