Quentin Shih – Citizen of the State

www.quentinshih.com, previously blogged and you should see all his art projects!

“In the same hospital, upon the same bed, different people die in their different ways.
In my experience, hospitals – which have always determined life and death – are a symbol of power and violence. When people are born in this place, and when they die, they seem to be so insignificant and powerless.
In this series, I wanted to use a surrealist technique and a precise pictorial composition to depict what happens at the death of normal people in a country fixated by heroism; the relationship between a few ordinary people and the state as I understood it.”
