XC. HuA Beijing is delighted to present the art project “Index 1/2” together with the Icelandic artist Georg Oskar Giannakoudakis and Chinese artist Dafei. The exhibition will be shown in the form of a documentary guide. The project will display the aesthetic language of the two artists to the audience in an unconventional way. Exploring the possibility of the “real world” through the various creative techniques of the two artists who represent different cultural backgrounds, the exhibition explores the creation of similar, but distinct intercommunication in different time and space contexts.
XC.HuA+ is thrilled to present its premier project, Paraffin Object, featuring refined, intimate art objects produced by Dorothea Reese-Heim from her ongoing series ‘Versiegelte Schriften’.
Dorothea Reese-Heim’s unique style is based on her approach to material in relation to form, shape and presentation-techniques. With ‘Versiegelte Schriften’ the artist presents a prolonged investigation into working with books and other paper related objects, as a means of artistic expression. This series dates back to the early 2000’s; it is the result of extensive experimentation and manipulating books, pages and paper into objects of exaggerated, elevated meaning.
Green Go Home, a collaborative installation by Tomas Vu and Rirkrit Tiravanija consisting of prints, texts and graffiti over portraits, is inspired by the spirit of resistance that lies at the root of these origin stories. Whether or not these theories are true, the rebellious gesture that they represent resonates profoundly not just in Latin America, but all over the world. Green Go Home, first presented at the Colombia-America library in Bogotá, Colombia, exposes the underlying subtext of U.S. interventions and colonialist attitudes towards Latin American: an antagonism that has cost many lives and much strife. In each installment, Green Go Home invokes the spirit of rebellion against the invader, the colonial power and the repressive government to investigate the layers of interpretation, readings and misunderstandings of resistance.
XC. HuA Gallery is pleased to announce that the gallery will be the new agent of Dorothea Reese-Heim. During her lengthy career the artist has always been committed to the forefront of exploration and theoretical research in terms of contemporary art. XC HuA Gallery will be hosting Reese-Heim's solo exhibition in Berlin during the month of September 2018.

The studio is an important privatespace for artists. Here, the artist is infinitely close to complete freedom, free to imagine and express himself; it is closely connected with the artist's spiritual world. The design and arrangement of the studio can also show the artist's unique artistic concept.
