Fan Xi graduated from the Sculpture Department of the Central Academy of Fine Arts in 2009 and currently lives and works in Beijing. With a particular interest in the relations between objects and between space and people, she has attempted to revealing such relations to create new entries and form new layers, and thereby deconstructing the original concept of “objects”, which she uses as a vehicle to explore contemporary meanings of fantasy and reality, capture objects’ attention to the non-object world, such as status, relationship, situation, and time, just to name a few. Her works based on relations elevates a limited visual world to an infinite non-visual space.
