XINYU XUXX is a Chinese-born. London-based image artist and screening organiser.

She is one of the organisers of If Splash as your Whitsle 水哨, a programme showcases queer, diasporic moving images and artist films through multimedia art events. 

Xinyu’s practice is based on the image as the medium, including moving images, prints, video installations, and short films. Currently, she is exploring the vulnerability and performativity of the image as a digital body, contribute to the visual intimacy and caring experience, how the image uses its own fluid body to inhabit different spaces and times, providing in-between spaces for the marginalised body in the context of diasporic queerness.
