Jia Xi Li is a Chinese Canadian textile artist based in London. Her work looks to materialize memory and time in a biographical format. As a mortal existence, human beings inhabit and interact with spaces and time physically and spiritually. Brimming over with objects that allude to the deepest self, the environment encloses the traces of humanity, history, and relationships. An object is not an individual entity but a compound structure of traces of time and reflections of life. She sanctifies and places reverence in the everyday.
Since graduating from Royal College of Art in 2021, Jia Xi has exhibited in London, Berlin, Guimaraes, Edinburgh and New York.
