a ready made installation / bamboo bush, concrete block covered with terracotta tiles, restored porselan statue of Buddha / dimensions: around 160 / 120/ 50 cm
This installation is a metaphor of nowadays China. The little statue of Buddha (Guàn Yin Puša / Kwan Yin Buddha ( Sanskrit: Avalokiteśvara (अवलोकितेश्वर), which I found broken in the bushes around the LOFT (see only the statue bellow) is good example for the past of China (the ancient times) – little bit broken, some parts are missing lost, but it is fixed and ready for future use. And also the base is good example for the present of China – actually it is a "borrowed" piece from the wall of KONKA (one of the biggest producers of TVs in China). Next to them, I planted a bamboo bush, which represents Chinese spirit. I wrote this explanations as a map on the next wall (it could be seem on the pictures bellow) Making a connection with Chinese culture, I also did two interpretations of this statue (you can see them bellow too).
