"In a rapidly changing China, ‘memory’ seems to vanish more quickly than everything else. That’s why preserving memory has become an alternative way of life."  - Yin Xiuzhen

The Daily Beast visits Li Songsong's current exhibit at Pace Beijing and discusses his large-scale installation which consists of 91 “oddly shaped aluminum panels (many look like the staircase that folds into the fuselage of a small jet) all covered in Li’s signature thick paint and assembled as a tunnel”.
