ISBN: 9780854883103 Category:


Zadie Xa (b.1983) is a Korean-Canadian artist whose work investigates issues of belonging and identity, drawing influence from both the fantasy and the lived experience within the Korean diaspora through film and performance, sculptural installation, textiles and painting. Xa’s brand new commission for Whitechapel Gallery will be an immersive experience informed by her ongoing engagement with indigenous histories and oral histories of the spirit world, and particularly those of local East London legends of apparitions and spectres. The accompanying catalogue will feature complete new photography of Xa’s installation, and will be the first monograph published on this intensely creative contemporary artist.
