Opening Reception:
Friday, January 11, 2008, 6 - 8:30 pm
Plum Blossoms Gallery Hong Kong

 

For his latest solo exhibition at Plum Blossoms Gallery, Wu Shaoxiang will unveil a selection of new works exploring the theme of wealth and modern consumer culture. Not content with replicating the internationally acclaimed ˇĄCoiningˇ¦ series, Wu continues to explore new forms of innovative sculptural representation. His new series, Walking Wealth, consists of life-sized human figures made out of bronze-cast US dollar notes. With their distinctive body language, these anonymous figures pose as witty commentaries on mankindˇ¦s endless pursuit of monetary gain. Here Wu once again showcases his ability to incorporate form and concept in new and striking ways ˇV a brilliance that has distinguished him as one of the leading Chinese sculptors of his generation.
