While in Shanghai, I visited several small galleries featuring young Chinese artist.
I discovered the art now in China sends a message.
Ifagallery featured Christin Kalweit.
Christin chose barb wire to send her message....
" There is no innocence, only different levels of responsibility"
In her art...the razor wire seems to be harmless, not revealing its true purpose..
"the refined blades / our words / thoughts / decisions / actions / reactions just keep on rolling un-noticing / neglecting the traces left behind. "
I went to China with an open mind...not knowing how the trip would change me...
But never expected such a profound message.
This message has crept into my mind often...and already in only a few weeks...it has stopped me, and had me rethink and make some changes.
We think we are innocent....but are we???
