Gun and Hot Water Bottle is part of a project called Dead Horse Bay.
There is an abandoned beach named Dead Horse Bay, which used to be a landfill for New York City garbage. “From there, I collect remnants of the past garbage which are already charged with human emotions they have acquired in the practice of everyday life. The objects are transposed to a real space where they become something else. Through my act of lifting, transporting, scattering, suspending, grouping, heaping, arranging, the objects start to lead a new life, which seem to sit between the past and the uncertain future. The images and objects lie between the recognizable reality, and the ambiguous imagination.“
