instant hutong

Urban carpet by instant hutong.Marvellous !
San Bu Lao Hutong [Urban Carpet: Red]. 2009
180x180 cm. embroidery on canvas
Series of 8 carpets representing different maps of Hutong areas with a size of approximately one square kilometre and a population of 30000. Each of them has been isolated and presented as autonomous town within the big city. They are embroidered by hand with the same technique of the propaganda slogans on large fabrics used by the communist party during the seventies. The carpets have been filled with white wire wool insertions. All along year 2009 the urban carpets will be shown to the Hutong dwellers inside the courtyards and on the public lanes in order to share the project with people and bring it back to the city districts it was inspired from.
