Description

Papercutting is a traditional Chinese art going back 2,000 years. The colored, intricately cut papers are used as a story-telling medium in festivities, for prayers, and as everyday decoration. The red bag takes its motif from a papercut created by Ai Weiwei as part of his Papercut Portfolio, published by TASCHEN in 2019: Cats and Dogs, his reflection on works from the 1990s, when he returned to Beijing from New York and found his artistic identity.
