  • “THE EMPEROR’S ANIMALS” from shanghai-based sculptor JIANG SHENG

    This is the work of young Shanghai-based, Xiamen native sculptor Jiang Sheng called “The emperor’s Animals”. Sheng pays close attention to the transition from traditional Chinese agriculture to the so called “modern” agriculture as well as the new relationships formed between the Chinese market economy and the land. Using chicken blood and flour, he created this human spine to represent the integrity of Chinese farmers. Connected to this spine (via needles and black string) are transcribed discharge records of gallstone patients from an anonymous city’s hospital divided into note strips. Every strip represents an identity, including that of many farmers.
