Xuefei Wang is a Chinese artist currently based in London.

Most of her works start from personal experience, exploring memory, loss, and personal emotion. She delves deep into the essence of memory and the impact of loss and emotion on personal experiences. Her latest work attempts to resonate with the viewer by showing the inner feelings of a dark phase that has haunted her for 7 years.

"I have suffered the atrocity of sunsets.   

Scorched to the root

My red filaments burn and stand, a hand of wires."

“Now I break up in pieces that fly about like clubs.   

A wind of such violence

Will tolerate no bystanding: I must shriek.”

"I am inhabited by a cry.   

Nightly it flaps out

Looking, with its hooks, for something to love."

——By Sylvia Plath



In my spare time, I like to wander around the cemetery, which gives me a sense of peace and tranquility. I read the words on the tombstone and guess the life of the deceased. Oneday I noticed some letters on the tombstone had fallen off, so I wrote down these fallen letters and input them into AI to let AI write a poem using only these letters.
In this way, I am trying to retrieve and rewrite the lost memories and traces.
