Xie Rong, Painting until it becomes marble 

Love never dies, 2019. 

In the depths of grief after my mother-in-law’s passing, I painted with my own hair. As an action painter, my work is a physical manifestation of emotion, and this unique medium allowed me to capture my profound feelings of loss in a raw and visceral way. Through the drops of ink and the movement of my body, I connected action and mind, creating a powerful expression of sorrow on paper. I am deeply grateful for the opportunity to enjoy an exhibition opening without being covered in ink or paint, a rare and cherished experience for me. My heartfelt thanks go out to the Mother Art Prize and the incredible Anita team for facilitating such a memorable event. Additionally, I am immensely appreciative of all the visitors who shared their photographs and recordings with me, further enriching this unforgettable experience. 

Exhibition opens Thursday-Sunday at the ZC until 25 June.
