Yang Mai

While the news are filled with headlines about the amount of fashion goods that brands produce each season, Yang Mai’s exhibition „Good Morning, China!"

„Mai recycles deadstock business suits, athletic wear, and school uniforms, garments selected by the artist to signify societal roles and systems of control. Drawing upon his experience growing up in Guangzhou, China, where he studied fashion and continues to source his materials from a shuttered clothing factory, Mai reimagines these materials as chains of balloon-like forms or precarious stacks of neatly folded garments impaled with fluorescent tube lights and folding chairs.“ Credits:
