London based artist PINS partners with YKK, for a site-specific PINStallation using zippers to connect theme and body.
In a fast-paced, tech-driven world, PINS emphasises depth & connection in the hope to affect positive social change, in a somewhat superficial world. In his latest installation at the YKK London Showroom, PINS explores the theme of mental health through fine art, underpinning the notion that we need to wake up and become ‘unzipped’ to wider issues and societal concerns.
Through his work & philosophy, PINS delves into the notions of mass-consumerism and the status of image through diverse motifs and social commentary in a truly unique way. He combines tongue-in-cheek humour, guilty pleasures and contemporary themes, obsessions and addictions.
