1963

Yin Xiuzhen was born in Beijing, China.

 

 

1989

She graduated with a Bachelor in Art, from the Capital Normal University, Beijing.

 

( oil painting department ) and began teaching at the high school attached to the C.A.F.A.

   

1992

She married the artist Song Dong.

   

 

Through performance and installations she interested  by :
 

- the impact of industrial development on nature : Washing River 1995

 

- the destruction of the old city of Beijing Ruined City 1996

  - the urbanization : Transformation 1997
  She made known through the use of textiles
 

She uses the old clothes donated by people :

  - to create miniature models of them inside a suitcase : Portable City 2002
  - to connect a bisected minivan ( with a tube covered of found garments ) and to give
  it   a lenght of 14 meters : Subconscient Colectif  2007
   

2000

She received the Chinese Contemporary Art Prize and the UNESCO / Aschberg Youth
Scholarship

   

 

 

2001

She worked with her husband, for the first time on a project, a metaphor for the family:

 

The Way of Chopsticks.  Each artist created half of the work - a single wand - according to

 

previously chosen parameters, but each on their own, until the two sculptures are brought

 

together.

   

2013

They transformed the Rittenhouse Square mansion into a three-story multimedia

 

installation inviting the viewer to see the differences and similarities between American

 

and Chinese family life. Their daughter Song ErRhui is also collaborating on this project.
