Shi Jinsong's Artworks Show: - Shi Jinsong reinvents household furnishings as dangerous, threatening: lethal weapons lurking in every room. The idea for these deadly devices came from the birth of the artist’s daughter in 1999. Seeing other parents vie to outdo each other in baby chic, he concluded that social control did not end with Mao’s death—it also pervades the consumer revolution. In jockeying for status and style points, we become both torturers and victims, he says, “at once the designers and the designed”. - A characteristics always exists in Shi Jinsong’s works: the work itself is like a sharp stainless steel blade, with its apathetic attitude, cutting into the inside of the chaotic society. He casts himself as a member of the system that is hysterical, filled with desire, and absurd, and thus pushes absurdity to its extreme until the system collapses. Behind the absurdity of Shi Jinsong’s Baroque works, one can always vaguely hear some laughs. The laughs can easily penetrate the puzzle and illusion of our era. Another key of his works proves this point even more clearly. It is the post-modern application of traditional aesthetics, surfaced from the power of memories buried deep down, and it makes the transcendence of this era becoming true - It seduces the desire buried deep in one’s heart, the admiration of violence and aggressiveness, as well as the naïveté, transcendence and fear of bloodiness and death.
