Despite the not-so-obvious choice of artistic subject, Xuanyuan Li has here effectively captured the pandemic’s impacts through quasi-still-life type sculptures. The intense contrast between medical instruments and flowers insinuates a delicate imbalance between fragile humanity and the impact of the pandemic. The contrast of colours is equally striking, foliage greens reflecting in, whilst sharply opposing, the harsh silvers of the medical equipment.
