January 5-February 11
Since 2004, Xia Xing has been creating agglomerative paintings, the size of whose individual units does not change within any one year. This was initially 70 x 100 cm, but changed to 140 x 200 cm in 2007 and 2008, becoming 35 x 50 cm after 2009. Painted content is all reproduced from photo images appearing in the same newspaper in the same period, so that whatever appears in the news is what the artist paints. His is a regimen of constant waiting, with even he himself unaware of when a work may be finished.
