The Chinese-born, Amsterdam-based artist Ni Haifeng creates mixed media works that subvert the cultural systems of language, return, exchange and production. Para-Production, documented here from inception through installation, utilizes shreds of discarded fabric gathered from Chinese garment factories to propose a conceptual reversal of capitalist production.

Using materials like textile "shreds," cardboard boxes, LCD screens, chili pepper, tea, porcelain shards and wooden crates, Amsterdam based Chinese artist Ni Haifeng creates powerful, poetic installations that examine issues like cultural globalization. In this catalogue, he questions what defines cultural identity--what power art still has--in our globalized world.

Known originally for his large-scale installations, which combine painting and sculpture, Haifeng has included video and photography in his repertoire since settling in Amsterdam in 1994.
