As one of China’s most celebrated artist, Cang Xin holds the profound belief that all things have spirit, and approaches his work as a means to promote harmonious communication with nature. His works have included bathing with lizards, adorning the clothing of strangers, and prostrating himself on icy glaciers: each act representing a ritual of becoming the other. Cang’s Communication series is an ongoing series that began in 1996, and involves his engagement with the world and his tongue.
