‘Equality or Quantity’ is a series of conceptual ceramic sculptures exploring questions of equality.
Passive and capricious “Equal Couples” are watching a victim of oppression, inequality, and rape. They stand up, not against injustice, but only to be seen as if they are holding a ritual ceremony instead of helping the victim. They feel fulfilled and are probably satisfied every night because they are equal. They have been appointed to participate in all societies that fight for equality. Have they achieved equality or just some “Equal Quantities”?
They are everywhere, but the “Beautiful Painful’s” pain continues! The “Beautiful Painful” has been forced to be in the middle to nurture and feed the “Quantities.” The “Beautiful Painful” is the best excuse for the standing-around “Merciless Couples” to be present.
I wish the “Beautiful Painful” was left alone with the pain. Maybe she could find a way to cure it.
