Because of Xie Kun’s smartness, the material world collapses and its image cracks. She was addicted to depicting the world she had discovered—both magical and real, using simple strokes or objects. The links of the vines lead the viewers' perceptions, expelling them from the real time and space, and showing them a different kind of existence.

-- Liu Libin (Professor, Central Academy of Fine Arts)


The reason why Xie Kun’s work was selected is that she cleverly presented a kind of tension in the image. This tension comes from the combination of art brut in her works and the inspiration of the Western style. At the same time, her originality of using different materials also gives her work an unpredictable flexibility.
