Xu Zhen

°1977, Shanghai (CN) – lives and works in Shanghai (CN)

Xu Zhen is a conceptual artist whose work often takes the form of provocative sculptures, installations and interventions that confront sociopolitical taboos in contemporary China and freely manipulate western expectations of Chinese art and commerce.

In 2009 Xu Zhen subsumed his individual artistic identity and transformed into MadeIn – a contemporary art creation corporate focused on the production of creativity, and devoted to the research of contemporary culture’s infinite possibilities. Subsequently in 2013, MadeIn launched a brand – Xu Zhen, redundantly making Xu a product of his own corporation.
