Statue Series

Fantasy Studio, Complimentary Project, Liverpool Biennale
A Foundation, Liverpool, 2008

In this series of the works, I made images of statues and cityscapes by embroidery. I was interested in cityscapes that represent male-dominated, conservative, coded visibility. Architecture is also an accumulated, edited history of the past displaying different power structures that have come and gone over time. The works here are re-interpretations of architectural images and monumental statues that I transform into playful images of assemblages. My collages combine contrasting elements such as Western/Eastern, male/female, found images and photographs etc.
