Qiu Zhijie, Map of domestic zoomorphology (detail), 2013

In this work donated by the artist to Querini Stampalia Foundation in the occasion of the exhibition Qiu Zhijie. The Unicorn and the Dargon is evident that one of the many characteristics shared by different cultures  is the zoomorphology applied to daily life objects.

 

In this map the artist analyses the different multicultural variations that men apply to a particular form or shape when trying to change it and make it useful, by adding a handle, a lid, a spout.

 

This is a sort of 'domestic zoo' where many objects are connected each other as in the same way  the different conceptual cells in every single map.
