Taking global public comics as the primary material, Delinquent consists in a combination of collaged, regrouped images and symbols gleaned from the Internet, constructing a chaotic image system with plural values. Through bending and folding, the Buddhist symbols breaks away from the plane, becoming the limbs of the “Panda” in three-dimensional space. At the same time, it also acts as load-bearing structural support of the sofa. The elements of “hand” and “foot” are derived from figures of classic cartoon characters, which form a new image after separating from its original cultural context. Delinquent combines contemporary visual, popular culture and traditional symbols, aiming to confuse the sculptural characteristic of artwork and the functionality of daily object, as well as to challenge the boundary in between.
