    Chapter 4: I Love Xijing—The Daily Life of Xijing Presidents, 2009
    Mixed media

Xijing Men, consisting of Chen Shaoxiong (China), Gimhongsok (Korea), and Ozawa Tsuyoshi (Japan), was founded around 2007, just in time to make sardonic comments about the heady slogans and boosterism of the Beijing Olympics in 2008 amid political tensions between ChIna and Japan. Though their artworks often end up as videos and installations, they are in fact rooted in collaborations and performances; lacking a lingua franca that the three could converse in, humour ended up becoming their common language. The camaraderie of the artists also allowed a sense of personal yet critical perspective, where the individual’s place is more clearly seen in the backdrop of nationalised identities.
