Konfuzius Institut, Berlin
This exhibition collects images from Si-Qin’s personal family photo archive, kept and carried with him as he moved around the world. The images reflect the diverse background of the artist’s upbringing: the son of a German mother and Mongolian-Chinese father, he spent his childhood in Berlin, Beijing and with an Apache community in Arizona. These diverse cultural influences have informed and inflected Si-Qin’s work. For this exhibition, Si-Qin goes back to the personal photos and artifacts that have been with him during his family’s and his own movement between countries and cultures.
