Born and raised in Beijing, Lexy (also known as Xiao Liangzi) is an artist and researcher, currently based in Bergen and London. She works with experimental analogue photographic processes, textile, and moving images. She is interested in repetitive gestures, durational performance, materiality, exploring how time, perception, and repetition can produce a form of visibility and aesthetic experience. Her practice is turning to do her analogue photographic processes in a more environmentally friendly way while preserve the traditional analogue techniques in an evolving

manner, exploring what a sustainable darkroom should or could be. Her academic reseach is about experiment-based repeated working process, investigating the ways to interpret pairs of paradoxical ideas around repetition, such as degradation and superposition, interruption and continuity, permanence and impermanence. She tends to relate her investigations to the phyilosophies of image, trying to build a connected, consistent and poetic theory system through her artistic practice.
