刘辛夷,本科毕业于杭州的中国美术学院雕塑系,研究生毕业于伦敦的Goldsmiths学院艺术系,获得艺术创作硕士学位,现生活和工作于北京。他的工作形态主要包括装置、影像和在地性项目。

刘辛夷感兴趣于探询个体如何理解和回应政治的技术化。他的工作线索始于检验被广为接受的政治常识,后在追踪以卫星电视,商业电影,在线百科以及社交媒体为代表的跨国公共领域中的意识形态传播中得到发展。近年以来,他开始寻访现实性的社会空间并关注其中的中国身体,从中查问那些持续构建了现代治理的基础技术中的关键细节。他寻求以情境重置的方式研究和诠释21世纪生命政治的复合协作。

Liu Xinyi is an artist based in Beijing. He received his Bachelor of Arts from Sculpture Department, China Academy of Art in Hangzhou, and his Master of Fine Arts from Goldsmiths in London. Liu works on various medium including installation, moving & still image and context-specific project.

Liu Xinyi is interested in how individuals understand and respond to the technicalization of politics. He starts from verifying widely accepted political common sense and later develops in tracking the communication of ideologies in the transnational public sphere represented by satellite TV, commercial films, online encyclopedias and social media. In recent years, he starts his search for social spaces in reality with attention to the social contruction of Chinese body, from which he inquires the key details of the underlying technologies that continue to build modern governance. Liu seeks to extend his research and interpretations on the multiplex coordination of biopolitics in the 21st century through situational reconfiguration.
