Spreading fear and mayhem in the visual arts.

Ah Xian in Heilbronn, Recklinghausen & Den Haag

Bust N°25 from the China, China series by Ah Xian

Ah Xian, whose work was part of the deeply inspiring Die Obere Hälfte (The Upper Half) group exhibition a couple of years ago, is now touring Germany and the Netherlands with over two dozens of his eerily compelling porcelain busts and sculptures - which aren't ready-mades, but casts taken from the artist's relatives and friends.

The exhibition closes this weekend at Städtische Museen Heilbronn/DE and will then travel to Kunsthalle Recklinghausen/DE and Gemeentemuseum Den Haag/NL (further details below).
