    Gao Lei's practice encompasses on the confrontation and conflict between the current individual will and the social system with a materialized landscape that is orderly, calm and non-violent. He draws on the incredibly life objects as the medium and borrows the “standardization” of everyday products as an element. On the one hand, it refers to a well-ordered social system, and to depict the confrontation process between the individual and the power by using the contradictions and gaps caused by the interconnection and restriction between objects. On the other hand, the materialized specimens or individual monuments in the works show a virtual constant pattern in which the material enters from the functional and daily wear.
