Boys will be Beuys
HSC year: 2005, ARTEXPRESS year: 2006
Expressive form: Sculpture
There were three main ideas for my body of work. In China the zodiac signs are very important and traditional and my sign is the Year of the Rabbit; also in Biology class I became aware of the devastation that the introduction of rabbits has caused to the Australian environment. The main influence, however, was the work of Joseph Beuys.
Four main shapes were chosen, then cut out of wood and covered with grey felt (reference to Beuys). These rabbits became the symbol of the 'the group’ or 'the male’, and the single rabbit 'the female’ or 'the individual’.
