Bing Xu

Working in a wide range of media, Xu creates installations that question the idea of communicating meaning through language, demonstrating how both meanings and written words can be easily manipulated. He received a MacArthur Foundation “genius” award in July 1999, presented to him for “originality, creativity, self-direction, and capacity to contribute importantly to society, particularly in printmaking and calligraphy.”

In 2003 he exhibited at the then new Chinese Arts centre in Manchester, and in 2004 he won the inaugural “Artes Mundi” prize in Wales for Where does the dust collect itself?, an installation using dust he collected in New York on the day after the destruction of the World Trade Center.[
