My work examines storytelling thru identity. A reconstruction of my life thru my eyes using analogue and digital photography, found objects, old photo, ink, collage, poetry, painting, sculpture and performance aka New Genres.
Xiouping possesses a trove of analogue images, pictures she’s made of classic-era hip hop artists in repose. Her presence informs each photographic frame, offering soft comment on persona, place, time, and medium. Subject and photographer conspire in making this New Genres artist calls, “Herstory" for you to see through her eyes. The pictures are part of the multimedia work-in- progress "Reconstruction of the Destruction, an Analogue Time Capsule.”
Xiouping aka Crystal Chang is a B.F.A. in New Genres from San Francisco Art Institute. She is California native who has lived in San Francisco, New York, Los Angeles and resides in Venice Beach.
