Xinyi Cheng
The Horse with Eye Blinders

10.12.2020 to 09.05.2021
Hamburger Bahnhof - Museum für Gegenwart - Berlin

Xinyi Cheng (* 1989 in Wuhan, lives and works in Paris) was awarded the Baloise Art Prize in 2019. Painting is at the centre of Cheng's artistic practice. Her works often have a focus on male figures. Besides showing portraits, she also depicts her models in their interaction with each other. The surrounding space remains mostly undefined and often consists of internally structured, monochromatic surfaces. Through this, the bodies of the subjects are emphasized. Their relationship to each other is only hinted at through tender gestures and intimate moments, but also through enigmatic actions, and thus left undefined by Cheng. In her first institutional solo exhibition, Cheng presents a series of new paintings.

The exhibition is made possible by the Baloise Group.
