作品自述 / Artist Statement:

“大宗帝国”挪用了肉店中导购图的逻辑,将南美、北美、非洲和澳洲等不同地理区域与雄鸡、野驴、袋鼠以及骆驼的身姿形象相匹配,将动物身体的区块划分转化为政治地图描绘的地理板块。

Appropriating a logic of the informative shopping charts in butcher's shops, the work Block Trading Empire matches the geographical regions of South and North America, Africa and Australia with the respective bodily shapes of a rooster, a wild donkey, a kangaroo and a camel, partitioning sections of the animal bodies, turning these into geographical sections as commonly delineated by political maps.
