DESCRIPTION -

White Demon Tiger 毛毛白虎 , as a necessary prop during the “insects awakening” day, it is, however, is regarded as a taboo in an ordinary day. As now presented as such an adorable format of plush doll, I attempt to transform the taboo to be loveable consumer goods, and sets to challenge the traditional thought of Chinese people under the contemporary society with western influence.

ARTIST STATEMENT -

In Hong Kong, there are many Chinese scare of the China custom traditional sacred objects such as the ‘Demon White Tiger’. It is because its represent some kind of devils or evils. On the contrary, they usually beg it seriously for helping to solve some difficulties or against the people who will bad to them. People are rarely talking or even worship it such as the other Legend Gods or idols, because they all know it is very ridiculous and is superstition thinking.

The White Demon Tiger 毛毛白虎 represents some kinds of contradiction mind in Idolatry of Chinese. We won’t devote or worship it in an ordinary day. We just joking, laughing, or even ignore it at all. However, at the day of ‘insects awakening’, people’s attitude will be changed by begging it for helping us. We scare it but not worship it. The tiger helps us to against the petty people, but we don’t treat it as our friend. We believe that it could help us, but it just only made by a paper plate.

If the White Demon Tiger 毛毛白虎 becomes a knitted doll or consumer goods, would it be changed in people mind? Would the tiger knitted doll be hugged in our arm or laying on our couches or beds? Would it be a playmate or toy in girl’s hands? Would it be accepted even its appearance is very terrible and not cutie as other dolls? This object is raising the question about the habitual feeling and belief in Chinese’s mind.
