Xinyi Fox Hu

(Chinese, b. 1992. Lives and works in Geneva)

Xinyi Fox Hu’s ceramic practice stems from a deep rooted passion for food culture which was already the subject of some of her previous photography works. 

Researching at length various materials, textures and forms capable of withstanding the impressive firing process, Hu’s persistent curiosity is reflected in the unique organic pieces that emerge. Representing nature's elements as well as fictional creatures, her works encourage us to awaken our inquisitive spirit.

Hu holds a Master in Fine Arts, TRANS - Socially Engaged Art Practices, from HEAD (Geneva, Switzerland)(2022), a Bachelor of Photography from Gobelins Paris (Paris, France)(2019) and a Bachelor of Advertising - Media and Communication from the University of Technology of South China, Guangzhou, China (2015).

Hu’s previous solo and group shows include (selection): La pantera, l'aquila e la tigre: dive, Canale Milva, Lumpenstation.Art, online (2023); Cheminée Nord artists and their guests, Espace Cheminée Nord, Usine Kugler, Geneva, Switzerland (2022); OASIS, HEAD Grad show, LiveInYourHeaD, Geneva, Switzerland (2022); Re-connect Art, Prague Biennale - Festival of Performance and Video Art in Public Space, Prague, Czech Republic (2021).
