Zhou Xiaohu

b. 1960, China

Zhou Xiaohu was one of the first contemporary artists in China to work experimentally with sculptural ideas of video and animation. With a background in sculpture, oil painting and graphic design, Zhou's work is a dynamic combination of these mediums, reflecting a world in which technology rules and the media is the pinnacle of propaganda and public influence.

Best known are Zhou Xiaohu's clay-mation sculptural installations that showcase meticulously worked video dramas taken from news stories and fictional events, enclosed inside sculptural sets composed of clay figurines (the 'characters' used in each clay-mation).  Referencing scenes of war, terrorism, international summit meetings, and natural disasters, Zhou satirizes the level of media-control in a digital age, in which public opinion can be manipulated through documented news, and where scenes of war, torture and famine have become commonplace and cease to shock.
