Xuan Ye

August 11, 2017

What name do you go by, and what kind of artist are you?


Xuan Ye is the prototype of many objects, one of which is a.pureapparat.us. Disquieting the infrastructure of poiesis, a.pureapparat.us and its etceteras vacillate within the spectrum of the habitual, the unusual, the perpetual, and the ephemeral.
