Papercutting is a traditional Chinese art going back 2,000 years. The coloured, intricately cut papers are used as a story-telling medium in festivities, for prayers, and as everyday decoration. The bags and scarves take their motifs from a papercut created by Ai Weiwei as part of his Papercut Portfolio published by TASCHEN in 2019.
