Wing Wo Wave And White Cloud City
This sculpture was made by Ann Carrington from old pearl necklaces and was inspired by Wing Wo Wave City and White Cloud City – industrial estates in Zhuijang Province, China which manufacture every kind of conceivable pearl adornment in colossal quantities.
It is about pearls and the discrepancy between their perceived status of being timeless status symbols of refined taste and wealth (with exotic overtones) and the often very unromantic reality.
Wing Wo Wave and White Cloud City are Chinese sailing Junks believing the dream, cruising on a tangled never ending sea of wedding tiaras, chokers and earrings.
