Zhang Peng’s Lost Innocence

11

Zhang Peng was born in Shan Dong, China (1981), he lives and works in Beijing. Zhang Peng’s image of girl dolls symbolizes the discrimination against young girls in China and the injustices they endure because of the one-child policy.

“In a broad sense, all of my works demonstrate a kind of oppression. If conditions allow, parents plan a future that they think will be good for their children. If they are not wealthy enough, they hope their children will have a skill and then they force them to develop it. As children grow up, their character is distorted by the inappropriate pressure of their parents and their schools. The appearances of my figures drift between real people and dolls. While the image is aesthetic, I also want to reinforce the strong sense of distortion”.
