DOES IT HURT?
Hermione (Jiayi) Shen is a Shanghai-born multidisciplinary artist, fashion accessory and product designer with a multicultural background currently residing in New York City. Her work challenges the social norms and problematic stereotypical conceptions of races, genders, sexualities, and classes within the fashion and art industry.
She loves incorporating unconventional and experimental materiality into her work and expressing her unique point of view through bold, organic shapes, forms, and exquisite craftsmanship. Her creation is substantially influenced and inspired by her personal journey living in different parts of the world from an early age and her intimate self-reflection of the quotidian experience.
