Connection

by Jinglu Liu and Golem Klon VIII

ARTIST STATEMENT

“The work takes place in a virtual space where the moving character represents us, the audiences who are able to travel freely without boarder.

There are two sculptures connected to each other with many ‘links’ in the space, where Liu’s sculpture is based on the ancient Chinese philosophy – balance between positive and negative natures of a human; and Golem’s is a boy trying to remove the nail pinned on his foot seeking for release and freedom.”
