Inspired by a Dorothea Lange photograph, “End of the Day to Weight” is a quasi-autobiographical work by Hung Liu. The dandelion is the flower she adopted as her own symbol–like her, it migrates, starts off as a beautiful flower and then whitens, transforms, and ultimately disintegrates. It establishes roots anywhere, and is a tenacious weed but also quite fragile. The laborer on the other side panel could be Liu herself, toiling during the Cultural Revolution.
