The Venice Pavilion at the 55th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia is paying tribute to the “soft art”, weaving, and Venice as the destination of the legendary “silk roads” with the exhibition “Silk Map”. Six artists from Italy and the East have been invited to create artworks for the group show: AES+F, Marya Kazoun, Mimmo Roselli, Shilpa Gupta, Marialuisa Tadei and Yiqing Yin.
The Paris-based French designer Yiqing Yin created the art piece “In-Between”, a red threaded body portrait of a woman. The installation is made of liquid organza panel embroidered with silk threads.
Yiqing Yin immigrated from China at the age of 4. She studied at the Ecole Nationale des Arts Décoratifs. She first presented her creations at the Hyères International Festival in 2010. Yiqing Yin has been selected by French Vogue as one of the 8 young designers to follow up. In June 2011, Yiqing Yin was awarded the Andam Prize for First Collections.
