Xu Tan was born in Wuhan, Hubei Province in 1957 and currently lives in Guangzhou and Shenzhen. In 1993, he became a member of the “Big Tail Elephant Group” (Da Wei Xiang), an experimental artistic group formed in Guangzhou. His work has been shown around the world, including at the 53rd and 50th Venice Biennials, the 2nd Berlin Biennia, the 2nd Guangzhou Triennial and the 4th Kwangju Biennial, amongst others.

徐坦,1957年生于武汉,现生活于广州和深圳。他是实验艺术工作小组“大尾象”成员。时至今日,徐坦还是保持着他“漫游者”的生活方式。他敏感于社会生活和文化的变化,不停地追问当代艺术的边界何在。他的工作方式更像是一个思想者,他的一些作品在产生的当时尚无法定义,而在今天更显其存在的意义。徐坦曾参加第五十三届威尼斯双年展,第五十届威尼斯双年展、第二届柏林双年展、第二届广州三年展、第四届光州双年展等。
