Xiaojing Yan: In Suspended Silence
Richmond Art Gallery, Richmond, BC - Sep 14 – Nov 10
Through her immersive exhibition of sculptures, mixed-media installations and silk “paintings” executed in pine needles, Toronto-based artist Xiaojing Yan refl ects upon Taoist beliefs as expressed in Chinese myths and folklore. Curator Nan Capogna points out that Yan also draws upon “traditional Chinese art, iconography and sym-bolism” to explore aspects of the spiritual and the transformational. In Suspended Silence is Yan’s fi rst solo show on the West Coast.
