Cang Xin

Biography

Chinese, b. 1967; lives and works in Beijing, China

Details

Cang Xin studied at the Tianjin Academy of Music and took up painting in 1991. In 1993 he moved to Beijing’s East Village and became active in the performance activities that flourished there. He subsequently incorporated shamanism and Daoist philosophy into his performances and photographs. This approach is evident in his "Communication" series (1996–2006), in which he is shown touching a variety of objects with his tongue in the hopes of making contact with the spirits that he believes inhabit all inanimate forms.
