Yin Xiuzhen & Duan Jianyu @ Turner Contemporary

21 February 2018 - 2 September 2018

Yin Xiuzhen is known for her large-scale sculptural works exploring themes of globalisation, memory and the fast-paced urbanisation of contemporary China. Xiuzhen often uses found materials and second-hand clothes, drawn to the memories and personal stories they hold. As the artist says, “in a rapidly changing China ‘memory’ seems to vanish more quickly than everything else.”
Xiuzhen’s installation Digestive Cavity will take over Turner Contemporary’s Sunley Gallery. This is one of a series of sculptural spaces in the form of bodily organs. Visitors can venture into this room-sized stomach cavity, conceived by the artist as a place for stopping and slowing down.
