Fan Xiaoyan is a sculptor hailing from Gaomi in the Shandong Province of China.  Her work is a bit jarring to say the least.  According to Fan, the figures are reflective of a “surrealistic virtual world in which men and women are equal… the arrival of a new era, a new kind of human being, a new power, a sensation…”

I, however, don’t feel any equality in these pieces.  The women appear to have been subjugated by some external power, like they’ve been forced into their cyborg transformations… giving the pieces a sort of Grindhouse quality to them.

Regardless of her intention, the sculptures are certainly striking.
