“A series of hollowed-out television sets frame beguiling scenes imagined in Xiangxi’s works, begun while studying sculpture at the Guangzhou Academy of Fine Art.
Situated in a small creative community in Hei Qiao Cun on the northeastern edge of the city, his studio is littered with second-hand appliances like washing machines, which become the sites of miniature worlds inspired by locations such as his old workspace in Guangzhou, the workers’ dormitory he once lived in, his parent’s sitting room, the interior of a train carriage—even his dream home. They are replicas rendered faithfully, but playfully, often using the cement, brick, glass, stone or paper materials found in their life-sized equivalents.”
This is an acoustic version of the 4th song from my bands upcoming EP ‘Broken English’. The song is called Waypoints and myself and Luke did this last night while our bassist was getting some tones for a new record we’re working on. Our Debut EP will be coming out on June 5th and the launch party is at The Workmans Club!
