Fan Xiaoyan has got war on her mind. War and the innate beauty of females. When both themes are slapped together the result is something akin to Lady Gaga in that oddball Bad Romance video—metallic silver encrusting the flesh. Or at least plastic flesh—mannequins—as displayed in a recent exhibit.
Fan Xiaoyan says her work symbolizes the next plateau of human evolution. At least that’s the gist of her wordy description of homo sapien possibility expressed by her cyborgs. Come to think of it, these attractive abominations look like they fit the aesthetic nightmare of the Fallout universe. Hmmm.
Open the source link down south for some mind blowing sculpture, it’s not Michaelangelo, but it definitely strikes a chord.
