Lot description
Inspired by the iconic image of Mimi in a billowing white dress, played by Marylin Monroe in the "The Seven Year Itch" filmed in 1955, emerging Chinese Contemporary artist Ju Duoqi (China, b. 1973) recaptures this scene in "Mimi" (2010). This large-scale color photograph belongs to the artist's newest series "Fantasies of Chinese Cabbages" where Ju painstakingly recreates the world's most celebrated and iconic Western images in intricate arrangements of Chinese vegetables and fruits to replace color and texture. In this process, Ju questions and explores the "Western version" of pop culture and history through the eyes of an Eastern female artist. This photograph is an edition of 5, measuring 59.05 x 47.24, and comes unframed in excellent condition.

Ju Duoqi was born in 1973 in Chongqing, China and graduated from Sichuan Fine Arts College in 1996. She has exhibited for years at the elite Galerie Paris-Beijing, and has been the subject of countless Museum and Gallery shows, invited to the "Beijing BS1 Contemporary Museum 2007 Nomination Exhibition"at Zhu Qizhan Art Museum and also at the Beijing Art Museum of Imperial City, and the Contemporary Art Museum of Asia in Beijing. The artists currently lives and works in Beijing.
