One of Zhang Huan’s most powerful works, Family Tree was created two years after he left China to live and work abroad, leaving behind potential persecution as well as family and friends. Dealing with issues of cultural identity, familial relationships, and self-expression, this installation creates a moving image of the isolation felt with the loss of one’s past. The artist had three Chinese calligraphers cover his face with poems, tales, tales, and family names from his homeland.
