In the work "Goose", the artist simulated a pseudo-history of the species “goose.” She constructed a monument on which stands a statue of goose. Then she attached two light-salmon-colored and wax-made columns to the body of the goose statue. Organs of female sexuality carved in relief covers the two wax columns. Accompanying this statue, the artist selected various images derived from entering the term “goose” to the Internet search engine. The contents of these images include daily streetscapes, mythological rituals, wars, slaughterhouses, and actresses.In the exhibition room in which the statue and the image documents are juxtaposed, the “goose” seemed to incarnate an ever existed (but no longer an existent) role. In other words, the artist replaced the species “goose” with a role of feminine attributes, and thereby transcended the established route and scope of symbol construction.
