Chinese Australian artist Fan Dongwang's serial scupture Descendants have been given the imagery of “heads, eyes, mouths, arms, legs and tails” which project an animate quality to fabricate the unidentifiable biomorphic bodies. The constructed beings thus may be akin to the insect/bird/fish/human/machine hybrids that can be extended indefinitely by inventing new versions under the theme of Descendants. The entire composition of Descendants becomes a much-manipulated reassembling of some limited simple mechanical forms to trigger the viewer’s vision. The strictly geometrical shapes thus have an ambiguous effect of an autonomous being.
