Description/

This artwork made of cloth by Lin Fanglu is associating the softness of fiber with the strength of metal coming from a Dong craftswomen heritage. Lin Fanglu sees an analogy with women often considered as soft and weak but becoming stronger and more and more powerful over the time.
The bright cloth – a traditional Dong minority hand craft fabric– inspired the artist and is the main material used in this work. The production of the “bright cloth” consists in over 20 procedures including dying, hammering, hanging to dry under the sun, applying egg-white to the surface, etc. Its shiny aspect gave its name.
Fiber, a material that is soft in the eyes of ordinary people and can represent women, can actually show a steel-like effect through thousands of tempers. Just like the visual effects of this work, women’s power is rich, strong and indestructible!
When Lin Fanglu lived and worked together with the local craftswomen, she was impressed by the whole process involving incredible time and effort, hammering the fabrics over countless times. The women repeating this work over the riverbank and under the trees were shaping their very life by the hammer in their hand.

Lin Fanglu

designer

Lin Fanglu always thinks about the traditional handicraft from the perspective of contemporary art. Therefore, she has done investigations on site about the Zhou Cheng village of the city of DaLi in YunNan province, for the purpose of knowing more about tie dye's technology of Bai nationality. Through nearly one year’s research about the Zhou Cheng village, she has carried out ingenious experiments about the tie-dye process of Bai nationality, including the collection and study of embroider technology, the derivation from conception to embroider, and the experiments of tie-dye with using different materials.
