Xihan Zhai


MFA graduate from Hochschule Trier, Idar-Oberstein Campus. After completing her study from Beijing University of Technology, she embarked on adventures to study jewelry in Italy at Alchimia, in Oslo, Norway at the Academy of Arts, and in Idar-Oberstein, Germany at the HS Trier. She is a Chinese artist who focuses on the research of fog based on nature and culture. She works with diverse media such as installations, videos, photography and material based jewellery. She uses opaque materials to express her experience with hazy fog.  She has exhibited her artwork in China, Greece, Spain, Poland, Italy, and Norway. She thinks of her artwork as a partner that can take her to experience and discover the world.
