about this work
Li's persistent pursuit of a 'collective' of reality in Dongguan finds itself also in the work 'Rainbow', comprising a motley collection of household used objects assembled by the artist to create the semblance of a rainbow. Li explains, "What is it that gives most ordinary people the ability to endure the arduous and weariness of life day after day? 'Rainbow' is a form that expresses aspiration and conviction". Under the rubric of formulating this sign, Li accrues an assembly of common items once possessed by anonymous individuals, redirecting the flow of these everyday objects through a progression into different color registers.
