Olympia and C’mon Everybody are proud to present Veil, a solo exhibition of Yao Ruilin‘s recent photographs.
Veil is an accumulation of childhood keepsakes, with a deep affection for home and heritage. Our worlds are changing in this hyper-moving era (whether we are mobile or static). These images document Ruilin’s internal experience transitioning between China (Chengdu, Shanghai), and the US (San Francisco, New York). Part of Ruilin’s personal nomadic history has caused feelings of isolation and outsider-mentality. Emotions that are universal, but hyperized depending on circumstances. By covering up different parts of herself and her subjects’ bodies, Ruilin reveals the personal contentions Chinese women experience.
