Description

"Composed of 28 wax infant models, this work included nets that were made of transparent silk and silk thread, the 28 infants were divided into several groups doing the same poses---as trying to approach each other with hands and faces up. The piece demonstrated that even if it's deliberate to get close to each other, they still couldn't really get close enough." (WANG Nan Min, 对脆弱的诅咒:姜杰的艺术表达, Art Circle 艺术界, 1998 (volume 1), available on http://gb.oversea.cnki.net/KCMS/detail/detail.aspx?filename=YISJ199801003&dbcode=CJFD&dbname=CJFD1998) (Jerry Wu'23).
