O Zhang

In her exhibition titled Horizon, O Zhang reminds us that the girls who are born and raised in rural China constitute one of the weaker portions within society, while asserting the belief that these girls will play major roles in the future of the country. Even though the crouching position might suggest some sort of vulnerability, it actually represents the metaphor of the “crouching tiger” in the Chinese culture, which represents the tiger that is regianing its strenght and getting ready to attack – a position that is actually intimidating. The artist identifies with these girls, while referring to the switly shifting equilibria. The horizon line that advances throughout the photographs alludes to the upcoming rise that is depicted in the pictures.
