Alien 1 responds to a certain notion of cultural conflicts in people’s mind. The kneeling posture of prisoners is exactly similar to those of Eastern Han Dynasty figures, dating from a thousand years ago. Similar human basic behaviors in different times and contexts remind us to consider whether human nature has changed over thousands of years.

 

The international context of the work combined to the Han figurines present images filled with symbols and implications. Their fusion offers extensive possibilities of imagination and understanding. Each audience will produce different judgments leading to various results.
