Lin Tianmiao’s first solo Exhibition, Badges, is due to open at the Galerie Lelong on 25th October. Lin’s beautifully embroidered hanging hoops contain colourful derogatory words, used in today’s society to describe women—such as Diva, Dyke, Ho, and Gold Digger. A soundtrack of the words also plays throughout the space.
The piece looks so calm and delicate yet it speaks in bold volumes about the distorted views of women that we still experience today. The clever use of media is very striking and lends well to the feminist theme. I love pieces of art with a strong message which make you think. I like how Tianmiao uses embroidery craft, making it feel fresh and modern.
