"Police and Her" draws together fourteen artists whom have sought to address questions of gender and authority with an intelligently provocative collective response, a thematically sound exhibition offering varying interpretations by each individual given independent locations in the actual site of the gallery space.
A delicate issue which pertains to a reality often indiscernible to the casual eye, the inter-relationship between women and policing authorities in the PRC, is depicted in an astringent manner. Frontal portrayals of the female form alongside/engaged with/subjected to/in oppositional contrast with immediately identifiable police reveals the complexity of what exists, in truth, due to an interdependency whose origin is socio-economic while simultaneously the fruit of oppression and gender discrimination.
