Exhibitions by Yin Xiuzhen and Duan Jianyu as part of NOW: A dialogue on female Chinese contemporary artists. Yin Xiuzhen (born Beijing, 1963) 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.
Xiuzhen’s installation Digestive Cavity (2015) will take over Turner Contemporary’s Sunley Gallery. Duan Jianyu (b. 1970, Henan province) is showing large-scale paintings drawing on Eastern and Western art to explore the tensions between rural and urban China, between tradition and modernisation. With both nostalgia and satire, her paintings explore the intricacies of daily life, often depicting rural scenes and traditions at risk of disappearing.
