ABOUT XIN SONG
Xin Song (b. 1970, Beijing) is a Chinese artist who studied at the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing. Her recent works involve her cutting patterns from magazine pages. By fragmenting images and texts, Xin Song splices up the images of hyper-consumerism and voyeurism like slivers in a kaleidoscope, in the service of large questions about social & political values. She has created paper-cut installations for US public transport stations installed in New York's Grand Central Terminal and the Bay Parkway Landmark Station.
