More About this Item


Description: Happy Life: Interdependent Dogs 2006 Bronze 84 x 40 x 19 cm Edition 6/8
Artist or Maker: CHEN Wenling (Chinese, b. 1969)
Literature: Chen Wenling's sculptures represent the spirit of collective imagery that defines China after her entrance into consumerist society. His work uses a mythological form that encompasses the spiritual insemination that overtook a generation with materialism in the 1990s, as well as the self-awareness and post awareness era everyday spirit of Chinese after the 1990s.China's entrance into consumer society has become a primary focus for contemporary sculpture themes since the mid-1990s, such as Xu Yihui's treatment of McDonalds, fast-food-like items; Liu Liguo and Liu Jianhua's exhibition of bodily desire enraptured with flowery appearance; Li Zhanyang's renditions of recreational establishments and arrivistes' scenes of daily life, among others. Since the mid-1990s, consumer societal culture has been a constant source of ironic ridicule and cultural criticism, from its cultural presentation to desire and cultural degeneration. But such disclosure is based in the condition of self-existence and social awareness, revealing man's dissimilation and the diminishment of individuality in a consumer society, which Chen Wenling's 'Happy Life' explores in depth, as well as promulgates the essence of a group's spiritual state in this era.
