    About The Work

    In his ongoing Identity Exchange series, Cang Xin asks people of different identities and social status if he may wear their clothes while they stand next to him in their underwear. At first glance, these works seem frivolous but it is through this exchange of clothes, this symbolic act, that Cang Xin seems to have entered into the bodies of others. This performance also has greater implications; using this approach, the artist is able to draw attention to the modern fate of the individual, namely that our soul and body is uniformed and defined by our profession.

    In 2006 and 2007 Cang Xin took two trips to Spain while working on solo exhibition for the notable contemporary art gallery Espace Cultrural Ample in Barcelona. During this time, the artist produced a new series of work, Identity Exchange Series: Spain, a continuation of the ongoing Identity Exchange series.
