Italy-China exchange: our partnership with Art Nova 100

Also this year, on display at the Arsenale of Venice there will be a young artist from Art Nova 100, a platform for the promotion of Chinese artists, with which the Arte Laguna Prize has been collaborating for years. A fruitful exchange that generates dynamism and synergies, bringing to Italy a number of interesting artistic expressions from the Far East and at the same time exporting the finalist videos of the current Prize edition. From March 25 to April 9, the exhibition will include some works by Xie Kun, in which the artist wonders about the existence of her body and asks herself if this is only a deception. Xie Kun was selected for the interesting display of graphic tension that merges Western inspirations with reminiscences of art brut. The original and captivating employment of different materials also gives her works unexpected plasticity.

The artist: Xie Kun
1987 Born in Zhangjiakou, Hebei Province. Graduated from the Mural Painting Department of the Central Academy of Fine Arts. Currently works and lives in Beijing.

Description of works
The existence of the body is the biggest lie. One day, I found myself very strange, and began to doubt whether I really live in the world I am in, or that is just a fraud. The color, shape, air and your temperature, I feel everything with my body. Does it really exist? I have to cut off my hands, my eyes, even myself, to extend body broader. But, if I cut myself from the whole world, am I still who I am?
