Puncture 2009.01

Acrylic, Chopsticks/ 15x15x18 cm

​Concept

I like to dance when I was in high school, however, in my country, most people and teachers do not agree that student should spend so much time on anything besides academia. What is worse is that they assume that children who like to dance are not good students. As a result, I was really angry at their stereotypical perspective in children that danced, so I made this sculpture to express how their thoughts are negative to children; similarly the core of the square is punctured by many chopsticks representing a mind being attacked by words and hatred.
