#LiXiaofei is a multi-disciplinary artist whose practices include video, photography, sculpture, painting, and installation. His photography “My Locker-01” comes from one of his long-term project “Assembly Line Project” initiated in 2010 for which he has visited over 280 factories all around the world. He positions himself as a calm observer and records the daily tasks of factory works, leaving the audience to contemplate the relation between producers, products, and producing systems. His video work “I Am the People_2” consolidates interviews made by the artist in the past 10 years of people from all walks of life. With exquisitely orchestrated music, the viewer is able to probe into the life of the collective as well as the individual._“Alienation?” - a Group Exhibition of 8 Chinese Contemporary Artists Residing in New York is currently on view at Eli Klein Gallery and will run through February 18, 2021.
