    Full Description

    The exhibition catalogue Three Hundred Mountains comprises a select one hundred paintings by the Chinese artist Haiying Xu (b. 1975). In her work, Xu, who came to Germany more than two decades ago, continues to explore issues of personal identity at the tense interface between heritage, homeland, and migration. Haiying Xu’s memories of the traditional cultures of southeastern China give rise to a reinterpretation of childhood fascination, imagination, and the experience of nature, though her paintings are also very specifically inspired by the colourful costumes of the Peking opera, classical Chinese literature, and the spatial concepts of shadow theatre. Despite its retrospective character, the main focus of this catalogue is her most recent work, which will be on display in 2024 as part of a solo exhibition at Galerie Andreas Binder in Munich.

    Text in English and German.
