Interview: Galaxia Wang

Luca Curci talks with Galaxia Wang during VENICE INTERNATIONAL ART FAIR 2019 at THE ROOM Contemporary Art Space.

Galaxia Wang (1990) is a Chinese artist based in Beijing and Geneva, he is a traveler artist into Switzerland and Iceland. Analogy, synesthesia and astrology are of particular interest for Galaxia who, through his practice, invents all sorts of systems, languages and other cosmogonies upsetting fixed identities. Working in this way Galaxia chose his name and even created his own language, Colossia (from ‘color’ and ‘synesthesia’).
