Sun Furong is a self-taught artist, who was encouraged to develop her interest in folk art traditions such as the revival of papercutting by influential critics and curators including Li Xianting and the feminist curator and scholar Liao Wen. She also worked as a seamstress, which developed into the practice of several exhibited installations, including that in the White Rabbit Collection, in which she constructed and deconstructed articles of clothing, cutting, snipping and slashing them with her dressmaker’s scissors.
The White Rabbit Collection is one of the world’s most extensive and significant collections of contemporary art from China. With a focus on works created since the year 2000, the Collection contains almost 3,000 works by over 750 artists and continues to expand.
