Published by Blue Kingfisher. Text by Pauline J. Yao.
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.

Published by Valiz/Museum De Lakenhal, Leiden. Edited by Kitty Zijlmans, Ni Haifeng. Text by Marianne Brouwer, Kitty Zijlmans.
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.
