Theater of Modernization, 2007- Han Bing

From the website:

"Han Bing uses medium format photography and video to capture the performative scenes he stages atop the sand-filled bucket of a giant bulldozer. Like other massive specimens of heavy machinery used in the demolition of the old and construction of the "New China," the bulldozer is symbolic of the impetus (both violence and desire) behind the visceral transformation of the body politic, the physical places and spaces that house and contain human life, and the peoples’ very identities and fates in society. Posed in the bulldozer’s outstretched clawed "hands," Workers, Peasants, Intellectuals, Red Guard Militants, Nouveau Riche Boss Men, and sometimes Beggars, act out contemporary "revolutionary model operas" as they pose in various relationships to one another.
Upon the symbolic stage of the bulldozer, history is collapsed and condensed onto one spatio-temporal line; the past is found lurking in the present and the future is proposed as a series of possible outcomes that stem from the alignments between social classes and the ascendance of the larger processes, ideologies, and values they represent. In Theater of Modernization, it is precisely these dramas of possible futures that are already nascent in our present realities, which are acted out atop the bulldozer.”
