The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) has recently been defined as a global pandamic. In a world where lifelines are closely intertwined, how to cooperate and combat the virus and quickly escape from the haze of the pandemic has became the first trial in the 2020s for mankind.
Recently, Zhou Meng has created a new piece on the topic of "The Pandemic as Trial to Globalization" that derives from the "Imaginitive Figures" series.
In his new work, the figures are connected into a tortuous and complex ring from the torsos and slender limbs, symbolizing that mankind has become a community of destiny, and will not surrender in the face of disaster. The series has also initialized a debate about the responsibility of being a global citizen which we cannot abandon or shirk.
Continuing the "Imaginative Figures" series, Zhou Meng's new work is still based on the combination of identity-less humanoids, stating the relationship between the tiny human and the grandeur of nature. Under the spread of the epidemic, we may not be able to literally "take the hands" of each other, but we will not be able to save ourselves unless we truly unite.
