Men in colours : general view

This is a photograph of an art installation by Chng Seok Tin. A theme that emerged in the 1990s is the human condition, where Chng questions the greed of man, the race for money, fame and power. This installation, of 100 figures in variously different poses, some climbing, resting, struggling, is an allegory of her perception of life and how different individuals react to events/situations in life. Physical dimensions of original: (various pieces) 3000 x 2000 x 2000 mm. Title devised by Library staff.
