Chen Shaoxiong was born in 1962 in Shantou, Guangdong Province. He graduated from the Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts in 1984. He was one of the members of the 1990s Guangzhou conceptual art group Big Tail Elephant. At present, he works both independently and on collective projects. He is a member of the Asian art collective Xijing Men and the Chinese artist group Project Without Space. He currently lives and works in Beijing.
As one China’s most multi-talented artists of the last few decades, Chen participated in underground art and experimental art in Guangzhou in the mid-1980s. Since the late 1990s,Chen has worked in a range of forms, including video, installation, photo montage, painting, performance, and collective action; his pieces have increasingly focused on the major challenges faced by Chinese society as a result of globalization. At the same time, he has also permitted the re-creation of the expressive forms of the past to enter his practice, and his ideas and actions have become even more open. He invites members of the public to participate in some of his works, which inspire and share collective memories and ideals related to urban and social change.
