Description

Gloves-Mission 2 depicts in photographic detail a used working glove reflecting the work of a human being who—as the title suggests—was on a rescue mission, exposed to harsh conditions and a rough environment that stressed the material to a breaking point, perhaps also pointing to the wearer’s physical and mental state of exhaustion. Xu Zhonghong received his MA from the Yunnan Academy of Fine Arts.
