Lot Details

This lot is for two photographs by of the most famous Chinese Contemporary photographers working today, artist Miao Xiaochun from his iconic "Last Judgement in Cyber Space" series of digitally created photographs. Note: both photographs are both unframed and in excellent perfect condition. "F-4" is from edition of 24; "R-3" is from edition of 20, both printed in 2006. Each photograph measures 33 x 23.60 inches.

This "Last Judgement in Cyber Space" Series is a major body of work Miao that appropriates Michelangelo’s famous fresco on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel and uses this masterpiece as fuel for provocation. This series is a brilliant conflation of the sublime aspects of religious paintings with subversive science fiction themes. Miao creates his black and white, silvery and futuristic images on a computer, painstakingly recreating each of Michelangelo's 400 figures with his own versions and placing his futuristic male figures in the exact corresponding poses and compositions to the original painting.

Miao was born in China in 1964. His photographs are in top collections world-wide, and have been the subject of countless exhibitions. His solo show "Miao Xiaochun: The Last Judgement In Cyberspace", travelled to White Space Beijing; Walsh Gallery, Chicago, USA and Alexander Ochs Galleries Berlin. Germany. Museum shows include as well as exhibitions at elite galleries in Asia and Europe including Gallery Urs Meile, Lucerne, Switzerland. Solo Museum exhibitions have been held at the Museum of the Central Academy of Fine Arts, Beijing, China; Kulturbegegnungen, Gallery Stellwerk, Kassel, Germany; Shanghai Art Museum, China; National Museum of Chinese History, Beijing, China; Beijing Art Museum, Beijing, China; Zhu Qizhan Art Museum, Shanghai, China amongst many others.
