Yin Xiuzhen at Museum Voorlinden

Is it a bookshelf or is it a closet?

Chinese artist Yin Xiuzhen creates these “Bookshelves” using old and worn clothes she collects from friends, family and strangers as bookcovers. Convinced that our clothes gather memories and experiences in the time we wear them, this work creates a remembrance by literally putting them in books.
