Exhibition Statement
"I use colorful cloth, expensive silk and humble linens to compose breasts to show women from different social classes, with different personalities and different responsibilities, all with beautiful, graceful, voluptuous breasts. I use ink to draw male and female symbols, barely shown through the tapestries. Sometimes I use huge works to call upon the image of the breasts and their power to alert people's consciousness to the power of the female gender. These are not only meant for people to recognize the beauty, softness, kindness of the female, but also to shock the viewer with women's power, resilience, and the limitless flexibility of the value and meaning within their existence." — Zhen Guo
