Mei Xian Qiu

Biography

“Mei Xian Qiu works in the medium of photography – but her broader subject is the construction of identity. Across international boundaries, waves of cultural propaganda, generational, linguistics and political divides, and histories both official and personal, she diligently reconstructs subversive versions of state-sponsored social frameworks. Increasingly, she also works with historical archive materials in more gestural, emotional and materially visceral collage modes that reveal the forces of hybridity at work in these matters. In all cases, her composed visual fictions express profound truths about the events and upheavals that shape who she is–and who we all are.” – LA Weekly
