FORMAT23/501 Xu Space Exhibition Opening: Gestures of Resistance

Jiayi Hu (She) b.1993, Xinjiang, China. Base in Chongqing. Jiayi Hu is a conceptual artist who mainly creates performance art, video, and painting. She is sensitive to the changes in her own environment and presents art from a unique perspective that is different from the habitual thinking of social life. Her performance art is not supported by creative concepts, but an interpretation of her own life experience, which is honest, pure, and brave. She always creates a sense of meaninglessness unconsciously, but it always hits human nature directly, because meaninglessness is the other side of meaning.

She has participated in several residencies including the Kwangju Museum of Art.
