Xue Mu

 

Mu expands her visual universe through drawing, photography, installation, and object assemblage. Using ambiguous aesthetics and elliptical tactics, the versatile artist closely observes and bypasses the inevitable cultural-political dissonances. Inspired by the research of psychologists, historians, and philosophers, Mu abides on subjects of the individual’s existential struggle and collectivism. Her project-based practice capsulizes perceptions of value obscured by time, technology, and belief systems. Meanwhile, she assembles the unregistered and the overlooked matters, reexamines their silent power, and names them Super Ghosts – the counter presence of the masculine western concept of Super-Heroes.
