Xiang Jing

Xiang Jing lives and works in Beijing. Her work as a sculptor is inspiring, thoughtful and provocative. She makes art objects, sculptures, and paintings designed to resonate with their viewers. Imagine walking into a gallery and seeing yourself in one of Xiang Jing’s sculptures but this is what happened to me when I saw something deeply resonant in these works based on the human body. There was a pull, an immediate sympathetic bond which she had conjured through the faces and bodies of the group collectively known as: Naked Beyond Skin. These works are immediate but not simple. Spend some time with them and a complex mix of feelings merge: joy, empathy, elation, readiness, warmth and openness or “the performance of humanity” as she calls it. In this interview, Xiang Jing All images: courtesy of Jel X Q Sculpture Studio Are A Hundred Playing You Or Only One, 2007, fibre glass, painted, 140 x 240 x 240 cm speaks openly about the transformative and transcendental signifiers in the diverse sculptures that form her extraordinary recent series Naked Beyond Skin.
