The story is about perspective. Tiananmen Square is recreated in 3D. It can be seen from every possibleangle, including the best, i.e. that of the tourists thatwe all are at some point. Yang Zhen Zhong’s work isboth discreet and savage as a satire of the supposedunity of contemporary China and the price of maintainingit. One step to the side, and the tanks have tostop; one step to the side, and the unity of the nineparts of the work is irretrievably broken. It is only bymeans of a single line of perspective that the unity ofthe Imperial City is held together. The artist swearsallegiance here to the Italian Renaissance, which fromGiotto to Alberti invented this perspective as a way ofdeconstructing the ideology that unifies and ordersthe world. The title of the work is a reprise of the slogan “Long live the People’s Republic of China. LongLive the Great Unity of the World’s Peoples”.
