Description

This work is one practice of HOU Wenyi's serial attempts to apply organic matters -- floral or faunal -- onto a piece of her handmade paper. By infusing a paper with traces of "life", HOU Wenyi wishes to give the paper a life of its own; if not at all, at least lend it some organic traces. (Dieu Donné, Wen Yi Hou - Workspace Program Resident 1991, available on https://www.dieudonne.org/wen-yi-hou) (Jerry Wu'23).
