Zhaoshen Wang is a jewellery designer from Beijing, who recently graduated from Central Saint Martins with an MA specialising in jewellery.
Wang’s MA project 'Infinite S', started with the observation and research into the frequent social events around identity that are a characteristic of contemporary European cultures. Events such as gay prides, festivals, marches and gatherings.
From this standpoint, Zhaoshen 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.
