Jiang Shuo: Monument of Time
October 20 - November 1, 2007

Opening Reception:
Tuesday, October 16, 2007, 6 - 8:30 pm
Plum Blossoms Gallery Hong Kong


For her upcoming solo exhibition at Plum Blossoms Gallery, the Austria based Chinese female artist Jiang Shuo will be showing a number of recent works from her internationally acclaimed .Red Guard・ series.

:The Red Guards, who have long disappeared from contemporary life, are thus resurrected, albeit transformed. They now cling to the very items of material culture that were frowned upon during the Cultural Revolution, when the Red Guards・ professed aim was to break from the :old world order;. This ironic juxtaposition of contrary elements strengthens the dramatic effect of the sculptures. The sardonic take on history presented by these works is but a part of the greater joke that history plays on mankind, and as such contain within themselves a much deeper meaning.;
