Temple for Her (2019)
Temple for Her is dedicated to Wu Zetian (624-705 CE), the only female emperor in the history of China. The temple consists of a pool of blood within the shape of a woman, a red staircase, a phallic throne, a pair of golden rolling eyes and a Chinese character Wu created for herself as her name, Zhao, which is a combination of two characters: "clear" and "sky." The temple is inspired by the lonely path the Empress took all the way to the top.
This show is created for Flyweight Project. It’s a 1:12 scale exhibition space located above the closet, run by artists Clare Torina and Jesse Cesario.📍New York
