Yin Xiuzhen, Weapon  2003–7

Weapon 2003–7 is composed of thirty individual ‘missiles’, each one measuring almost four metres in length. Each of these is constructed from plastic drying rods and metal hoops, over which different fabrics have been stretched and knotted. At the end of every projectile protrudes the blade of a small kitchen knife. When displayed, the missiles are suspended from the ceiling with fishing wire, at various heights, with the blades pointing in the same direction.
