By getting answers, some surprising, to 90 questions, curator displays multifaceted perspectives in new project, Li Yingxue reports.

A mannequin head, feather duster, straw hat, toy goldfish, pigeon sculpture, coin and a motorcycle license plate … Hundreds of seemingly unrelated objects are intricately connected, moving in a mesmerizing, chaotic dance.

This 10-meter long, 3-meter-high installation titled The Squad Is Burning Out is the brainchild of young artist Tong Kunniao. The piece features a myriad of discarded consumables that he has meticulously collected from urban and rural settings, transforming forgotten debris into captivating art.

"They have been removed from progressive lives and a savage society. I envision their mixture and existence as another world; a consumer world brimming with immense energy," Tong remarks.

"This chaotic yet unified installation is intended to remind us that society is an expansive arena, a battleground where countless elements compete for attention and struggle for basic survival," explains the 34-year-old artist from Changsha, Hunan province.
