About

Preview: 17 January 2013* Exhibition: 18 January — 2 March 2013 Born in the '80s in a hutong, Ma Qiusha is an up-and-coming artist living in Beijing. For her first UK solo exhibition with Chinese Arts Centre, she will be showcasing her key works to date. Ma Qiusha's work reflects a special sensitivity with ordinary everyday objects and materials. Carefully, she re-stages them in an unfamiliar environment to tell a story or express suppressed emotions. Mainly working with video and painting, at first glance her work is calm and expressionless. Only if you spend a certain amount of time with the works, will the underlying story and emotion reveal itself. Ma Qiusha graduated from the Central Academy of Fine Arts (BA) and the Alfred University (MFA). Her works have been widely exhibited nationally and internationally. In 2009, she had a solo exhibition in Beijing Commune and received widespread attention. Important group shows including Soft Machines (2011) at The Pace Gallery, New York, Media Landscape-Zone East (2010) at Contemporary Urban Centre, Liverpool Biennial, Move on Asia 2010 at Loop Gallery, South Korea.
