      About:
      Ouyang Chun’s expressive, childlike paintings helped to position him as one of the foremost representatives of his generation. In this exhibition the artist debuts a series of bronze sculptures inspired by the detritus of civilization and painstakingly fabricated from molded mud or clay. Discarded junk, madhouses, vagabonds, rabid dogs, and swelling megalopolises all figure into the artist’s skeptical and humorous view of modern society. In these works the artist carefully reclaims selected objects from the absurdity of modern life in an unceasing pursuit of the truth.
