The Chen Wenling 'Red Memory' installation is compelling, creative, and a little bit creepy with astonishingly lifelike statues posed in expressive situations. These macabre mannequins are dyed fire engine red, adding an element of surrealism.

Chen Wenling has placed these peculiar statues in various areas, predominantly beaches and other areas near water. The Chen Wenling 'Red Memory' statues seem to be having fun, which actually makes the unsettling statues endearing as well. Check out the featured gallery to take a look.
