Chinese artist Gao Lei explores the power, control and violence of the ruling class in contemporary society through witty and allegorical art.
“I was inspired by French philosopher Michel Foucault’s thoughts on power and control,” Gao said during a press conference in November. “I’m based in Shanghai now and there are factories near my studio. The change of environment also influenced materials used for my works.”
