Guest chicken bone

Just saw a solo gallery featuring Chen Zhen (RIP, 2000). Mind blowing, phenomenal, and inspiring!

"As an artist, my dream is to become a doctor. Making art is all about looking at oneself, examining oneself and somehow seeing the world."

Obsession of Longevity

 

http://www.pac-milano.org/ing/zhen03/obsession_p.gif'>

 

This installation represents the small universee of a person obsessed by the idea of extending the length of his/her life to infinity and consists of two parts, a room to sleep in, with a sort of kitchen cum laboratory next to it containing jars of dust and different substances with castings which reproduce the enlarged shapes of viruses. Nails representing acupunture poke ou t of the bed in teh first room, while the second room represents oriental medicine whic makes use of natural substances as it does also of cultural rites. Obsession of longevity is considered a work deeply self-orientated in which Chen Zhen deal withi the subject of his own illness. (An illness diagnosed when we has a child, that was incurable and promised him an early death).

If you haven't seen his work check it out if you ever get the chance. These pictures don't do the slightest bit of justice as many of the installations are huuuuuuge (some of them are interactive too, and play music/noise).

 

You will enjoy immensely.

Yay!!!

 

Here is a present:

You can either eat it, or make it your pet. Or make it your pet then make love to it, shelter its offspring then eat it along with its babies. :confused:

I already got a pig at the shop... he fucks chairs, obsessively and violently, so we call him Larry after Larry Flynt... he's not a very cool pig but I guess there aren't many of those

You should make him a cape! Then you can stitch the 12 oz. insignia onto it and parade him around the parkingn lot whilst taking pictures of him. THen you can make periodical posts about your escapades with Frank the pig.

 

But this thread is about Chen Zhen! Do not taint his aura with your filthy disussion. Away!

no, his name is LARRY

 

(sidenote: My Name Is Larry is the best song I will never hear again, sung by a retard with immortal lines like "my brother is a CERTIFIED PUBLIC ACCOUNTANT!")

 

If I made him a cape he'd probably fuck that too... he's a very horny guy... and that's not a pretty thing, we worry about leaving him alone near the smaller dogs... have you ever seen a pig dick? It's like a 16" corkscrew, all and all it's quite unsettling...

 

I tend to keep my distance...

Oh fuck thats gross. About the penis. Where the hell did Frank come from?

 

Frank.. I must've been thinking about Frank Zappa because you too like Frank Zappa. Its all I think about when I see your name, and also the word SMART. Smart. Smart like pain or smart like brain.

all that aside... this guys stuff is pretty cool... it seems to have that "harmonic balance" that's so inherent in eastern styles... even his attempts to be shocking are still very organized and "rhythmic" but that doesn't detract from his statement... pretty decent from a 2d perspective...
