Being

2015, Cuchifritos Gallery, New York, New York
Materials: porcelain, glass, fabric and foam

In Being, numerous life-size porcelain shoes were first shaped from the same mold. Later, each pair of re-shapeable clay shoes was modified and well-polished to be unique to represent a different person. Shoes on the floor without soles created a general image of the collective. In contrast, the pairs in the glass boxes with specially made fabric soles (souls) represented Meng’s beloved family members.
