Kexin Hao

Kexin Hao is a visual artist and designer born in Beijing and based in the Hague.

Kexin Hao (CN, 1993) is a visual artist and designer born in Beijing and based in The Netherlands. Her practice is a marriage of graphic design and performance art. Having initiated and being involved in various creative projects across China and Europe, Kexin challenges not only the geometrical borders, but also the boundaries between art and non-art space. She thinks beyond the disciplines of design, film, performance, game, and music, which results in rich hybridity in her art-making. Using a daring visual language, Kexin’s works is a constant swing between intimate close-up on personal stories and zoom-out to collective narratives; between a past of political heaviness and a flashy modernity rendered in humour and sarcasm. In her recent practice, Kexin investigates in the themes of body, rituals, health, archive, and collective memory.

Kexin received granted residencies at iii (instrument inventors initiative) and V2. She has exhibited her works at Rewire festival, TEC ART, GOGBOT Festival, MAMA, Worm, W139, PIP, CinemAsia, Luxelakes·A4 Art Museum, and participated in programs in educational institutes such as Sandberg Institute, ArtEz, Städelschule Architecture Class Frankfurt, and Klasse Digitale Grafik (HFBK) Hamburg.
