Anne Chu�s figures are archetypical characters; pawns replayed and recycled in variations of classical storytelling. Cutting across time and culture, they form a blueprint of universal myth. Showing a goddess hovering above a miniature pagoda, Guardian House draws upon the Asian tradition of protective statues; a subject reverberated throughout global folk-lore. Casting the floating figure in iron, and the building in lightweight polyurethane, Chu uses the discrepancies of her materials to enhance supernatural sensation. Set with stage-like simplicity, Chu offers a minimal suggestion of operatic narrative, allowing viewers to form their own epic drama.
