Ellen (Jing) Xu
February 4-25, 2017
Ellen (Jing) Xu’s multimedia installation transforms the gallery into the artist’s own dreamscape. As an interdisciplinary artist, Xu will use sculpture, video and drawing to discuss ideas about gender expression and queerness. Xu relies on humor, absurdity and eye-catching color to immerse the viewer in work that is open and intimate, in the hopes that it will instigate openness from the viewer in return.
Xu was born and raised in Inner Mongolia, China. Currently she resides in Seattle, WA where she received an MFA in Photomedia at the University of Washington. Previously Xu completed studies in both Sculpture and Law at Xiamen University in China.
