Behind-the-scenes: Zhou Xiaohu ‘Utopian theatre’ 2006

Our workshop team have installed Zhou Xiaohu’s installation Utopian theatre 2006. In the work miniature clay figures enact history-making scenes that have been transmitted to the world through the media of television and the internet. Each is modelled as a miniature theatre or movie set and accompanied by a television monitor, showing the events in claymation.
