Mr Monkey sees Chain at the Chinese Arts Centre, 12th April

"The magnolias are definitely less scary"

Mr Monkey looking at Magnolia Mr Monkey looking at 99 Needles

The first pictures Mr Monkey looked at were by He Chengyao, a Beijing-based performance artist. The flowers in Magnolia were photographed in the Summer Palace in Beijing, and obviously make a much more peaceful picture than 99 Needles in which she recreates an incident in her childhood when the Red Guard forcibly used acupuncture needles on her mother.

You can read about He Chengyao's work at the website (though the entry hasn't been updated since 2004).
