Statement

Hu Xiangqian (b. 1983, Guangdong) graduated from the Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts in 2007. He currently lives and works in Beijing.

Hu Xiangqian's artistic practice tends toward performance and video inspired by current events and his own surroundings. With a keen eye for the absurd, he skillfully highlights the contrasts in our society and amplifies minor incidents into major social signifiers. One of his best-known video works, Blue Flags Everywhere , documents a humorous but earnest attempt to run for mayor of his hometown at the age of 21. In Sun , Hu Xiangqian tries to tan himself the same shade as two of his close African friends, while Drift with the Tide is a poignant work about the artist leaving university by literally rowing out to sea.
