This captivating sculpture by Huang Gang depicts two figures ballet dancing: One is a woman dressed in a tutu who bears a likeness to the Statue of Liberty, while the other is a soldier dressed more formally in her uniform, who also appears to be ballet dancing. During the Cultural Revolution, ballets were performed for entertainment and political purposes, and this work is a nod to this occurrence. While the ballerina in the tutu appears more flamboyant, the other dancer holds a rifle in her hands, a striking reminder of the period of social and political upheaval. Through his nuanced piece Huang Gang explores the differences between the East and West, while preserving a degree of ambiguity regarding his political sentiments that leaves his work open to interpretation.
