  • About the artwork

    Artwork sold in perfect condition

    Since 2008, Kaixuan Feng has performed numerous performances that combine the art of Chinese calligraphy and body art. Her hair impregnated with India ink draws giant characters on a monumental canvas, her body becomes a brush. "Women"; “We are born crumpled, we die crumpled”; "Black ink"; “Emotion”, ”Peace“… are the titles of some of his performances from the “Ink Hair” series, each time, performed in front of or surrounded by a large audience (several hundred or even several thousand). For each performance, she makes a new white satin dress which will be stained with ink afterwards. The transition from white to black keeps track of the ephemeral. Each performance becomes a ritual exercise, each work is for her an opportunity for metamorphosis and reincarnation. The word she writes in this calligraphy translates to "Dust of the senses" or "To be tinged with the dust of the senses" in literal translation. The word "dust" = "sense" according to Buddhist thought, and still according to this thought, there are six: the five senses such as sight, smell, hearing .... + the sixth, which is " the mind". When our senses wake up, a subtle movement raises dust. These come from our body and our mind fly in the cosmos to finally rest on us. The notion of "being tinted" is a poetic image, as if these dusts have a material and colors that preserve the ephemeral of our senses.

Feng Kaixuan

China Born in: 1982 Emergent Artist
Kaixuan Feng is a Chinese artist, born in 1982, currently living in Lille. After four years of studying at the School of Fine Arts of Tianjin in China, she moved to France to study and experience the beauty of Contemporary Art. In 2010, she got the higher national diploma of plastic art expression (DNSEP).

Her work focuses mostly on her painting on coffee filters or with her hair, to transpose traditional techniques in everyday spaces.

Making of her life a work of art, is the path Kaixuan Feng has taken in order to concretize an articulated artistic approach around the concept of sharing and the public/private relationship. Trained as a painter, she now creates events through performance art. Photography, video and painting allows her to create the event, but also to produce a record of it. By creating the circumstances of the meeting, she tries to create connections between life and art, between her intimate space and that of others. Everyday life objects often reflect in her work the transition from the private to the public sphere.
