Directed by Fabien Pacory, this video of 5.21 min. in length, is a personal reflection about herself and her art. Hu Xiaoyuan explores the essence of objects and daily life experience through an artistic vocabulary centered on natural materials such as hair, old cloth, discarded wood and raw silk. Hu’s minimal yet highly poetic style finds expression in a wide range of forms, including installation, paintings and video. Since 2008, she has worked primarily with wood, through a perspective of observation and study, in pursuit of a creative energy completely different from that of her earlier works, while also redefining the relationship between object and form.
