Xerocx transfer on rice paper, wood clothespins and fishing wire
120'' x 200'' x 30''
Many sheets of rice paper with Xerocx transfer were suspended from floor to ceiling by wooden clips threaded on fishing line. The images on the rice paper include propaganda posters from the Chinese Cultural Revolution and portrait of Western Americans with charming smiles on their faces. Each collage on rice paper contains two original images which has been cut into rectangle strips with equal width and length. The artist placed strips of the same image separated from each other and reassembled the strips of the two images into a collage. The original images only contain four colors: red, green, black, and white. The two original images that combine to form a collage are made of different colors. This is a drawing installation piece, according to the description of this piece in the artist's slide list (link: https://digital.kenyon.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1346&context=zhoudocs).
