A NEW exhibition open this weekend at the Bon Marche Arcade examines the struggle of retired farmers in China.
They receive just 88 RMB (the official Chinese currency) a month to survive. To put that in context, that’s less than $20 Aussie dollars. Photographer Tami Xiang gave obliging farmers 88 RMB to spend and captured their purchases with a red background.
Peasantography: Lucky88 is at Cool Change Contemporary on Barrack Street until August 24.
