LIU XI

Liu Xi was born in 1986 in Shandong province, China. Upon her graduation from the Sculpture Department of the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing, Liu Xi moved to Shanghai and set up her studio there. She lives and works in between Shanghai and Jingdezhen.

While appropriating new formations, surfaces, and materials, Liu Xi continues to push the technical and aesthetical boundaries of ceramics. Immaculately produced and innately sensual, her sculptural creations explore the themes of sexuality and love, freedom and constraints, identity and self-discovery, femininity and masculinity, among many others. She has participated in numerous exhibitions in China and abroad including, Portugal, Norway, Spain, Korea, the United Kingdom. Her works have been included in various international Ceramics Biennales and collected top prizes and honorable mentions. Always ready to pursue new creative opportunities, she actively participates in residency programs, among recently completed were the ones in Bali, Taipei, and Yixing, and she is currently preparing for one in Mexico. Liu Xi’s works have entered public collections of New Taipei City Yingge Ceramics Museum in Taiwan, and Ajuntament del Vendrell in Spain, and Museu de Ceramica de L’alcora in Valencia, Spain, and Gaya Ceramic Arts Center, Bali, Indonesia.
