ས་གཞི་སྔོན་པོ་འགྱུར། (The Earth Turned Green) is a solo exhibition by artist Shen Xin featuring a newly commissioned installation that centers restorative practices drawn from the Tibetan language through performance, land and family histories. Xin’s work as a moving image artist often explores potential relations outside of nationalistic belonging. Their recent research focuses on multitudes of the self and the other, as well as the interrelationship between culture and ecology.
