'There never should been an artist named Jia Siwen' | 2012 | part of a larger project

Xi Guo’s work involves a fictitious dialogue between the artist and an imaginary painter named Jia Siwen. By creating works of art in response to Jia Siwen’s paintings, Xi Guo will enter into a dialogue with his own ‘invented’ character. Through the process of this artistic ‘exchange’ between creator and creation, the artist explores issues such as self-questioning and self-doubt.
