Time: Nov 8, 2021 09:30AM HKTAbstract:The sublime means a quality of greatness that inspires awe and wonder, an ideal that artists have long pursued.  In the contemporary sense, the sublime has a shifted focus towards the experience of the viewer or beholder of the sublime. Employing a variety of visual and auditory methods, Xu has attempted to create an experience that engages the viewer's senses and brings him or her into the work. Through discussing some of her visual music projects, Xu takes a look at her journey of achieving the feeling of sublime and how she employs such feeling to comment on our relationships to nature, society and ourselves.
