Collection: Zhen Guo | into this world
November 17, 2022 – January 7, 2023
Muted Landscape shows a view of our earth that is at once expansive and frightening. Images present a landscape as if seen from miles high, muted and defaced by the gray color and the great height. High peaks, rivers, lakes, and caldera fields are joined and blended, losing their features and value. But “muted” has meaning beyond toned down. The earth, disappearing before us under the advance of population and industry, is not able to call out. Our earth, the mother of us all, is silenced as pieces are dismembered and burned. So to the mothers and women of this world, their bodies and rights are continually under attack. They, too, are told to “shut up,” and their voices are not heard.
If we fail to speak for the muted and silenced, we will all face the same sentence.
