Eternity is a series of sculptural installations that replicate selected classical statues. Deemed the highest benchmark of Western and Asian civilizations, these statues are reiterated here using compound mineral, and they take on the form of a hybrid: the headless torsos of the Greek gods are conjoined jarringly with the head of the Buddha, positioned upside down.
In other instances of cross-cultural manifestations, sculptures inspired from classical Greco-Roman statues borrow tropes from Asian cultures, or the postures and attitudes related to Chinese divinities.
The artist has taken a provocative but also humorous approach to the differences in Western and Eastern cultures. The statues of the Greek Gods and the Buddha embody, respectively, the beginning of Western civilization and the highest form of spirituality in oriental culture. The migration of these timeless art pieces thus recounts the history of colonization, international politics and wars. Superimposing the two aesthetically and culturally dialectical elements, the artist brings the cultural conflicts and power struggles of human history to the foreground.
