A leading figure in contemporary Chinese art, Yin has worked primarily in site-specific installation and sculpture since the early 1990s. Her work addresses issues on both an environmental scale and a personal one, and often employs quotidian materials, including found textiles.
The large-scale sculpture Collective Subconscious for example, shown above, is composed of a bisected minivan connected by a long tube covered in a quilt made of found garments.
The public is welcomed inside this transformed conveyance, where they will find a cozy refuge complete with low stools and soft pop music - a space that invites visitors to break the silence of the hushed gallery, reinventing it as a place for conversation and discussion.
Just imagine yourself heading for your fave summerfestival in this van. Too cozy!
