Xiao Jiang - Ordinary Days - Exhibitions - Lopez de la Serna CAC

Inside the Old Room, 2023

In these works, different temporal axes converge: the past is projected into the present through the artist’s own memory and the photographs from which he paints. In the artist’s focus on universal elemental aspects, both Xiao’s domestic scenes—in which figures engage in everyday activity and routine gestures—and his landscapes could belong to another era, or even to locations other than the artist’s country. His images represent everyday moments, the ordinary days that give the title of the exhibition and also of two works in it.
