Chinese artist Guan Xiao creates works that highlight how our understanding of one thing is always in relation to our knowledge of another. The artist, who was born in 1983, explores diverse cultures and dimensions through her sculptural assemblages that are made from both new and found objects and artefacts.

Guan Xiao received a BA in Directing at the Communication University of China in 2006 and has since gone on to exhibit internationally at prestigious institutions such as the National Museum of Contemporary Art, Seoul; the Victoria & Albert Museum, London; the OCT Contemporary Art Terminal, Shenzen; and the Shanghai art Museum.

The artist’s recent solo exhibitions have included Flattened Metal at the Institute of Contemporary Arts London, in association with K11 Art Foundation (2016); Weather Forecast at Jeu de Paume, Paris (2016); Basic Logic at Antenna Space, Shanghai (2015); and Something Happened Like Never Happened at Kraupa-Tuskany Zeidler, Berlin (2014).
