Lot Details

"Made in China" by Sui Jianguo is from the same artist who tailored his signature Mao suit to Myron's Discobolus, and created the now ubiquitous giant toy Dinosaur series, which is arguably the most iconic Chinese contemporary art piece of the last few years. Sui's trenchant observation on global super-capitalism in his series "MADE IN CHINA", presents the position of China within the Contemporary capitalistic culture. This work emphasizes the conceptual reduction that continues to advance Sui as a leader of abstract and conceptual art in his native country and throughout the world. This multi-color sculpture is suitable for placement or installation anywhere. Made in China is an edition of 5+1AP, measures 23.62 x 94.49 x 23.62 inches, ( 60 x 240 x 60cm) and in excellent condition.

Sui Jianguo is generally regarded as one of the most important Chinese sculptors living today. As Professor and Chairman of the Sculpture Department of the Beijing Central Academy of Fine Arts, the most prestigious art institute in China, he has brought fundamental change to the contemporary art movement in China. His work, iconic in its cultural importance, is included in every important collection of contemporary Chinese art in the world. In the past decade alone, Sui Jianguo's work has been exhibited across 4 continents. Sui has held solo shows in China, Australia, Hong Kong, India and Taiwan and has participated in numerous high-profile exhibitions worldwide.
