Artworks by WANG Youshen are characterized by his attention on the influence exerted by mass media on our thought, feeling and behaviour. He selected ready-made images or personal photos and took up a study on their value and functions from validity and usage. The series entitled Washing stemmed from two pictures that captured the moment when thousands of Chinese commons were buried alive by Japanese army during the WWII. And one of them displayed how bodies on battlefield were washed away. Washing, in this case, gives vent to emotion, offers a form of forgetting or provides memory with cleanup.
