This modern sculpture by Huang Yong Ping is the Bat Project IV from 2004 relating to a major diplomatic incident when a US Navy EP-3 on a spying mission collided with a Chinese fighter in Chinese airspace. Here stuffed bats hang from the cockpit of a real aircraft, an allusion to the bat logo on the fin of the offending aircraft. Exhibited for a short time, the first time in Europe in the Nottingham Contemporary gallery, it is strange yet enthralling
