Foreign Bodies combines utopic garden & creation myths with border objects, like traffic cones and security fences, that are meant to control the way people are able to move. Through these ceramic based installations, ACC alumna Lu has created a large-scale installation juxtaposing seemingly discordant objects– a broken street altar with mis-sharpened fruit, a porcelain barrier railing, oversized decomposing peaches. Each component carries hints of Chinese mythology as well as American symbolism, creating a cultural blend of overlapping narratives.
