Gong Yuebin: Site 2801

YUEBIN Site-2801Gong Yuebin, Site 2801, 2011. Ceramic.MARCH 10 - APRIL 29, 2012

Rife with physical hardship and persecution, Gong Yuebin's childhood in rural China continues to inform his artistic vision to this day. In Site 2801, viewers are asked to confront an incongruous and satirical juxtaposition of humanity's past and present. Two hundred terracotta warriors based on models of those commissioned by China's first emperor, Qin Shi Huang, are displayed rank by rank, having been "unearthed" in a site that not only includes historical warriors, but additional modern combat troops and nuclear missiles. Inherent in the display is the artist's consternation about the apparent lack of progress in thousands of years of human evolution and empire building.
