Multidisciplinary artist Xie Rong (Chinese, b. 1983) lives and works in London, England. Her work challenges longstanding stereotypes about women and femininity, and in particular, subverts tropes about women of Chinese descent. She studied at the Sichuan Fine Arts Institute High School in Chongqing, China, and at the Royal College of Art, London. She won the Aesthetica Art Prize (2014) and the Chinese Arts Now Scratch Award (2019), and has performed and exhibited in the United States, France, Egypt, Mexico, Iran, Sweden, Australia, and Korea.
For most of her career, Xie went by her English name, Echo Morgan. Cut Piece was her final performance under that name. She has now reclaimed her birth name.
