Shadow of Knives: Incredible Silhouettes Cut from the Blades of Butcher Knives by Li Hongbo
For his latest exhibit titled “Shadow of Knives”, at Contemporary by Angela Li in Hong Kong, artist Li Hongbo, created a brand new series of metal silhouette sculptures cut from butcher knives. The cold, hard metal along with the simple, clean lines form a stark contrast to the messages that Li is trying to convey. “The sculptures are a warning to society” he explains, “Human beings will eventually destroy themselves because of their gluttony and their abuse of animals.”
