  • About the artwork

    Depuis 2008, Kaixuan Feng a réalisé de nombreuses performances qui associent l’art de la calligraphie chinoise et l’art corporel. Ses cheveux imprégnés d’encre de Chine tracent des caractères géants sur une toile monumentale, son corps devient un pinceau.

    “Femme”; “On naît froissé, on meurt froissé”; “Encre Noire”; “Émotion”, ”Peace“… sont les intitulés de quelques unes de ses performances de la série “Cheveux d’Encre”, à chaque fois, réalisées devant ou entourées d’un nombreux public (plusieurs centaines voire plusieurs milliers).

    Pour chaque performance, elle confectionne une nouvelle robe blanche en satin qui sera, à l’issue, tâchée d’encre. Le passage du blanc au noir garde la trace de l’éphémère. Chaque performance devient un exercice rituel, chaque oeuvre est pour elle une occasion de métamorphose et de réincarnation.

    Le mot que elle écris dans cette calligraphie se traduit par "Poussières des sens" ou "Être teinté de poussières des sens" en traduction littérale.

    Le mot " poussière" = "sens" selon la pensée bouddhiste, et toujours selon cette pensée, il en existe six : les cinq sens tels la vue, l'odorat, l'ouïe.... + le sixième, qui est "l'esprit".

    Quand nos sens se réveillent, un mouvement subtile soulève des poussières. Celles-ci proviennent de notre corps et de notre esprit volent dans le cosmos pour enfin se reposent sur nous.. La notion " d'être teinté" est une une image poétique, comme si ces poussières possèdent une matière et des couleurs qui préservent l'éphémère de nos sens.

Feng Kaixuan

Born in: 1982 China

Emergent Artist

Biography
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.
