Wang Xin is a certificated hypnotist and explores the creative ways to use hypnosis in art. Her artworks take the form of installations, moving images and new media. Unconsciousness, art world systems, and posthumanism are key features in her creation. She frequently uses language and signs to challenge the status of the artist and the functioning of the art market today. The impact of her bold slogans provides a satirical reading to her own position and relation to the art world, as well as a critique of the larger ecosystem of art. Since 2014, Wang Xin has cooperated with Imago Kinetics and founded the 8HZ Hypnosis Lab in Imago Kinetics’ Art Center in Hangzhou. Wang Xin is also the founder of “The Gallery” project, which is an alternative art space/system.

Wang Xin’s solo exhibitions include Every Artist Should have a Solo Show, de Sarthe Gallery, Beijing, China (2016); 8 HZ Hypnosis Lab, MoCA Pavilion Shanghai, China (2015); The Gallery, C-Space, Beijing, China (2014); Let’s Play in the Name of Art, Antenna Space, Shanghai (2013).
