Yin Xiuzhen

Yin Xiuzhen (b. Beijing, 1963) and Song Dong (b. Beijing, 1966), each maintain independent artistic practices yet explore the idea of collaboration itself by devising their own ideological framework for working together based on China’s most famous ‘couple’, a pair of chopsticks. Both have recently been shown in solo projects at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Yin Xiuzhen has shown at the 52nd Venice Biennale, the Schirin Kunsthalle Frankfurt and the Gwangju Biennial. Song Dong’s work has been featured at Documenta 13, the 54th Venice Biennale, Asia Society in New York, the Fundació Joan Miró, the 8th Instanbul Bienale and the 26th Sao Paolo Biennale. Song has also won several awards for his work including commendation at the 2010 Gwanju Biennale in Korea and as a UNESCO/ASCHBERG Bursary Laureate.
