Lot description
"National Flag of USA" (2011) is a conceptual stainless steel sculpture that recreates the American Flag out of specifically arranged, stainless steel surgical blades by emerging Chinese Contemporary artist Deng Zhen (China, b. 1976), who is becoming critically acclaimed in Asia and Europe for his unflinching mixed-media works which appropriate objects that literally and metaphorically referencing cutting, physical manipulation, therapy, rehabilitation, as well as a severing of Contemporary culture from China’s traditional past, and the conflation of Eastern and Western cultures and recontextualizes them into incredibly powerful works such as "National Flag of USA". This work lies flat and measures 43.05 x 63.10 x 4.25 inches (109 x 160 x 10.8 cm) This sculpture is edition 2 of 5, in excellent condition, and comes to the sale directly from The Studio of the Artist, China

Deng Zhen's works explore the loss of identity in contemporary China, where society has become increasingly globalized and economy driven. He takes on a fresh approach to interpreting modern circumstances with a unique perspective, focusing on the behind-the-scenes problems that lie beneath the seemingly booming economic and political agendas. Zhen is a newly graduated student from the renowned China Central Academy of Fine Arts, and has caught the attention of the art world with his brilliant creativity.
