Some Thoughts from Zhang Enli

Author: Zhang Enli 2007

The starting point (of my works) is the simple recognition that the body can be a container. The associations the image brings to mind may be a box, a sink, a tree, an empty room or something as small as an ashtray or a pack of cigarettes. In details we can see the essence of an object. We symbolically become "containers" and empathize with the psychological implications in Kafka's books. Equal relations, Frida Kahlo's courage and self-analytical skills, Susan Sontag's critical assessment of artworks - these are all beyond my understanding of gender.
