SICHONG XIE combines movement and material in body-based sculptural forms, including masks, costumes, and other objects. By placing traditional sculptural forms within new sites, materials, and social constructs, Xie investigates these forms and movements within global communities to re-consider and re-envision shared spaces and performative practices. She raises questions about identity, politics, cross-culturalism, and the surreal characteristics of her body in the ever-changing environment. Xie received her MFA from the California Institute of the Arts, CA. Her most recent multi-media multi-channel installation “Do Donkeys Know Politics, Scaffold Series I” is currently on view at USC Pacific Asia Museum in Pasadena, CA.She was a fellowship artist at The Studios at MASS MoCA and Skowhegan School of Painting & Sculpture. In the summer of 2017, Xie was chosen to participate at Hauser & Wirth Somerset exchange residency at Somerset, UK. She did a four-hour durational performance/installation “Walking With The Disappeared” at Hauser & Wirth Somerset. Recent exhibitions include the Wende Museum, Los Angeles, USC Pacific Asia Museum, Los Angeles, Hauser & Wirth Los Angeles, OCAT Art Museum in Xi’An, China, LACE Gallery, Los Angeles, Night Gallery, Los Angeles, Automata Arts, Los Angeles, Chashama Gallery, New York, Eli Klein Gallery, New York, and The Watermill Center, New York.
