Red Poster: Leg Gun (2014)

These works aim to present the institutional violence and essential racism in China. The idea about ‘leg gun’ started from a Chinese Communist Party propaganda theatre show. The director of the show wishes to use a gesture to narrating the war in the early 20th century in China. During the performance of this show, there is a scene that female use their legs to referring a gun. This action not only implied what they called ‘revolutionary spirit’ but also have the highly sexual hint (because of female diverging their legs). Therefore, I took this gesture into Chinese Communist Party’s posters, try to see what will happen when this gesture crash onto the propaganda image. I collected some posters related to Chinese Communist Party propaganda (mostly during the middle of 20th century) and replaced the gun on the poster with my legs (male’s leg).
