难言之隐 II— Sculpture
Unspeakable is a series of ready-made sculptures.
Work II tells the current situation of communication between two generations through unanswerable or hard-to-answer calls. The artist suspended two heavy bricks through the steel wire on the handset and the microphone. The huge weight let the handset attached to the telephone base firmly. The phone will ring every 5 minutes. If you can afford the weight and lift the handset, any viewer can choose to answer the call. The artist tried to bring the audience back to the hesitant moment in which the phone rang. At the same time, the heavy and unspeakable costs and concerns that exist in the two generations of communication will give viewers a rethinking of family relationships.
Materials: telephone, brick, steel wire
