LI NAIHAN - FLAMMABLE
As a long time resident of Beijing, Naihan Li has watched the urban landscape of her home city undergo drastic changes. The FLAMMABLE series is a response to events she has witnessed both here and abroad. These artistic candles are accurate, to-scale recreations of some of the world’s most recognizable buildings, including the Empire State Building, the CCTV Tower, and the Taipei 101 building. For someone who is not entirely comfortable with the intrusion of modern skyscrapers into their civic space, watching them burn down can be truly satisfying.
