Artwork description
Addressing the theme of the artist immigrant and evoking the cultural reference of the “Other,” Red Man depicts an unsettling image of Chih-Chien Wang against a white backdrop, his bare torso covered in red lacerations. Between an attempt to incarnate a local cultural referent (Indigenous people) and a link to Communist China and racist ideas, the work embodies the finesse of Wang’s aesthetic vocabulary, which focuses on manipulating and reworking the materiality of everyday life.
