Pace Presents Yin Xiuzhen
End Date: 02/11/2020
Yin Xiuzhen has been using old clothing as a material in her artistic practice since 1995. These scraps of fabric – salvaged, repurposed and sewn together – serve not only as a relic of their owners’ lived experience but also as a comment on the destruction and waste left behind by fleeting trends of fast fashion in rapidly industrialised countries.
I feel that clothes are like a second skin; they have their own expressive language and are connected with their times and therefore with history.
– Yin Xiuzhen
