Zhaoshen Wang is a jewellery, product and 3D designer from Beijing. Wang recently graduated from Central Saint Martins with an MA specialising in jewellery.
Wang’s MA project started with the observation and research into the frequent social events around identity that are a characteristic of contemporary European cultures. Events like gay prides, festivals, marches and gatherings. From this standpoint he explores an understanding of personal identities and social values.
He questions, from a jewellers perspective, sexual identity, dress codes and how jewellery can participate in these conversations.
The ‘Infinite S’ collection explores sexuality in a wide range of forms, materials and outcomes. Wang draws upon Asian and Western historical depictions of sex, taboos and openness, through a soft erotic vocabulary of sensuality and restraint.
