Urbanization Gargoyles 2010
The installation Urbanization Gargoyles investigates the interconnections between the urbanizing, torn-down Beijing, its socio-political context, and the loss of traditional values, environment, and social conditions. In the installation, the imaginary beasts, the gargoyles, are transformed into small-sized sculptures of dead dogs - domestic animals. The installation consists of a wall built from bare construction materials with the dog sculptures placed next to the wall, as gargoyles. The installation divides the space according the Cardinal directions, reflecting on the Asian cities (Feng Shui).
