Through creating experiences that are both familiar and foreign in a confined space, Xin’s work inventively anticipates and questions interpersonal differences in society. A central element in his creativity consists of implementing political and psychological metaphors in art, which blend together and become a set of collaborative entanglements expressing the dilemmas of living in a communal reality. Whether it is adjusting the physical dimensions of a space, creating interactive installations, or appropriating found objects Xin Yunpeng’s art activates a form of thought that requires spectators to contemplate psychological strategies in terms of our environments.
His solo exhibitions include all men are created equal, Hunsand Space, Beijing, China (2016); No New is Good News – An Exhibition by Xin Yunpeng, Inside Out Museum, Beijing, China (2014); I Don’t Know Where to Take You Yet – A4 Young Artist Experimental Season First Round Exhibition, A4 Contemporary Arts Center, Chengdu, China (2013); and 51 m2: 8# Xin Yunpeng Taikang Space, Beijing, China (2010).
