Hanging at Home


Published:

Using a combination of found and donated textiles and objects, Chinese avant-garde installation artist Yin Xiuzhen’s works are lauded for their inventiveness and humor. Her 50-foot-long Flying Machine (2008) merged a VW sedan, a tractor, and a passenger jet; Thought (2009) was a nearly 17-foot-high blue-fabric brain. In each piece, visitors could enter and spend time inside the art. The Beijing-born up-and-comer’s work has appeared at New York’s Museum of Modern Art, the Mori Art Museum in Tokyo, and at biennials in São Paulo, Sydney, Shanghai, Venice, and others. Untitled (2009), above, has found a home in the collection of Rancho Santa Fe art aficionados Iris and Matthew Strauss. See page 76 for more on their collection.
