Ye Wang. Piece: Foot Wear N.2, 2020. Door, shoes.. 82 x 204 x 17 cm. Statement: Ye Wang works with ideas about man being the measure of the world. From birth onwards, the world around us is gradually build up from the experiences of life. In any exploration and adventure, it is a personal experience that connects us to the world around us. We use ourselves as a ruler to measure the world, to feel, to touch, to smell, to hear, to tast, to wear…Every second that passes frames these experiences, feelings and emotions into some sort of eternity that can never be replicated or replaced. This is how Ye feel about jewellery.. Ye Wang
