“Industrial City Sex Dog” 2019, performative installation.
The installation, “industrial city sex dog”, is a metaphorical tale about freedom and desire. It started from when my father asked me to make him a Buddha painting and hoped to teach me the pointlessness of (homosexual) desires. He disliked the bodhisattva painting I made as well as my gayness, therefore after studying the Diamond Sutra, I decide to make an empty lotus seat with my favourite female feature: legs.
The writing for industrial city sex dog is a symbolic conversation between my father and me; the installation is a temple with an empty buddha/god/saint/deity seat that celebrities all desire.
