Xue Tao is a Chinese contemporary artist. His sculptures are archives of sorts and the handicraft aspect of his technique and his choice of material contrasts with the internet and television media that characterise our age. Xue Tao’s sculptures become disjointed from the real world, trapped somewhere between tradition and the present. This contradiction reflects the struggle to make sense of the contemporary world – a struggle that everyone in China is experiencing with the country’s dramatic modernisation.
