The Great Leap Forward refers to the economic and social
reform engaged in China by Mao Zedong between 1958 and
1961. The sculpture, which represents a zimmer frame to be
used by several people at the same time, talks about the
generation old enough to have experienced this period as well
as the other radical changes which have occurred in the world
since then. By slightly redesigning the well-known device, Hora
questions the notions of progress, dependency, collectivity and
loneliness in relation to history, ideology and economy.
