Unconquerable Dreams is a sculptural installation presenting a comparative study between the Terracotta Army sculptures in China and blow up sex dolls. It examines the idea of mass-producing inanimate objects with humanistic features to compromise one’s unattainable desire. Furthermore, it questions the repetition of history, the absurdity of mass production and the human inclination to manipulate the ephemerality of life.
IWCT is an experiential illustration event that will be on public display at the Gladstone Hotel from March 6–30, 2014.
Curated by Leila Courey, IWCT is a juried exhibition of experiential illustration that features work by emerging and established artists. Selected projects use illustration—or other art forms related to it—to occupy or alter the hotel’s 2nd floor gallery and public spaces, in dramatic, conceptual, and experimental ways.
