Weelsee Wen (b.1972) is a Chinese-Brazilian artist who is surrounded by great controversy. Rumer has it that as a child, she spent a lot of time in her parents’ auto shop in São Paulo making clothes from used rags. In 2000 Wen moved to the US to study art but soon found that art school had nothing to offer her and dropped out. Little is known of her whereabouts from 2009 – 2048, but after 39 years she re-emerged with a new body of textile representations of jumpsuits. Weelsee Wen exists across multiple intersecting timelines and is a figment of Judy Rushin’s imagination.
