Zadie Xa is a London based Canadian artist who creates performances, paintings, sculptures, videos, and mixed media works. Her diverse practice explores themes of representation, desire, and fantasy. The video series Deep Space Mathematics // The Transfer of Knowledge is based on Xa's research into Korean Shamanic traditions and explores how information and culture are passed between bodies. This work is emblematic of her unique practice.
Xa’s work has been exhibited and performed in group and solo shows, including Whitechapel Gallery, London, Serpentine Gallery, London, Carl Freedman Gallery, London, Marcelle Joseph Projects, London, NTU Centre of Contemporary Art, Singapore, Brussels Art Department, Brussels, and Museo Maeztu de Estella, Spain.
