sun yuan and peng yu: world leaders in weelchairs

another post from the saatchi gallery (the current exhibition ‘the revolution continues’ about chinese art is worth to visit!) here is the ‘old persons home’ installation by sun yuan and peng yu. they are renown for working with extreme materials such as human fat tissue, live animals, and baby cadavers to deal with issues of perception, death, and the human condition.


13 grandpas in motorised wheelchairs who randomly move around the room. it seems that they still try to battle against each other. maybe they would never stop to fight, even in the last stage of life. even in a helpless situation like that.
