Lucky Family 2-Special
Edition of 3 + 1AP

It was in 1995 when YANG Zhenzhong won early fame with his photographic works entitled Lucky Family. The series consists of four different combinations of a rooster, a hen as well as chicken, describing in a metaphoric way the traditional Chinese marital system, the formation of a classic Chinese family as well as the joy of a big family, undoubtedly a dramatic allusion to the issues of the structure of Chinese families. Although the artist denies any preference for images of chicken, audience can easily read from the pictures an extremely abundant hint about China’s future.
