Shi Jinsong's featured work is part of the series 'na zha', a sort of brand name for an outrageously unsafe line of baby products. Meticulously assembled in stainless steel from intricate mechanical drawings, they include a deadly carriage, a sadistic cradle, a sinister walker and a malicious, multi-part toy complete with needle-tipped pacifiers and dismembering abacus. Baby boutique confronts its 'shopper' with a radically strange and seductive 'product', lethal luxury designed to reveal the forces that dominate our lives in unimaginable ways.
