Cang Xin

Cang Xin, performance et photographie à l’art 

Né en 1968 dans la province du Sichuan, Cang Xin est diplômé du conservatoire de musique de Tianjin. Artiste de performance de renom, son œuvre s’oriente principalement sur la communication entre l'homme et la nature, la présentation de l'interaction entre l'homme et le monde spirituel.

cang xinIl rejoint Dong Cun ("East Village"), une communauté d'artistes de Pékin, en 1993, avant d'occuper un loft à Dashanzi, une autre communauté d'artistes dans le quartier d’art de Pékin. Connu pour deux collections particulières, « Communication » et « Changement d’Identité », il est devenu depuis un artiste incontournable. Considéré comme l’un des premiers membres de la communauté d’artistes de l’"East Village", avec sa série "Communication" en 1996.

Cang Xin se photographie léchant le sol devant des lieux célèbres du monde entier : la place Tian An’Men et le Temple du Ciel en Chine, la Tour Eiffel en France, les Arènes en Espagne, l’Opéra de Sydney, le Reichstag en Allemagne, ou Big Ben à Londres, sa langue reste en contact avec le ciment.

De même, pour "Changement et identité", il use de sa personne. L’artiste demande à des personnes de lui prêter leurs vêtements, les laissant exposés en sous-vêtements tandis qu’il adopte le métier, le statut social et l’image que les vêtements de la personne donnent.

Ces deux collections sont lumineuses et poussent les spectateurs à réfléchir sur leurs conditions en tant qu’individu, au sein de la société, et dans le monde.
