|Artista: Zhang Xiaogang||Base: 93cm|
|Supporto: Paper||Altezza: 77cm|
The artwork is selected from the collection "Amnesia and Memory" of Zhang Xiaogang. After 2000, the artist attributed an even more complex psychological significance to "memory" and "amnesia", even furnishing a new definition of them.
In "Amnesia and Memory" the heads, arms, torsos and light bulbs that has been used as symbolic objects in the previous works "Notes" or "Abyss", now served to intRoduce a new kind of metaphorical narrative. Even though the main subject remains that of the personal reflection on life and subsistence, the figure return in the present.
Amnesia and Memory No.5 by Zhang Xiaogang. Artwork signed and numbered in originale by the artist.
|Nota||Opera numerata e firmata in originale dall'artista|
Born in Kunming in Chinese province of Yuannan in 1958, is considered as one of the most famous and most required Chinese contemporary artist, particularly popular among the collectors abroad.
His artworks are strongly influenced by the story of his family. This is shown clearly in his first and also the most important collection “Bloodline”.
The protest of 1989 in Tian’anmen square also has a strong influence on the artist:
In my opinion, art and life are a unique concept, working in the art means also having a life. However my thought has no sense since the sanguinary event of 1989. From then on I understand that an individual is completely insignificant in front of the destiny. (Zhang Xiaogang 《“1989-1991” return to the human world》).
Today the artist, nearly sixty years old, is known not only in China, but also by all over the world for his artworks. He can always find new motivations in art after all the periods of depression and he becomes now the representative of oriental art. The common character of Xiaogang’s works is the importance of feeling, which can be found under the superficies and behind the imagines. He uses his own language in a particular way, with the capacity to create new figures which go much further than the portraits themselves.

if you LIVE IN EU
If you live in Europe (CEE) the price we show you already includes taxes. The works are taxed either with VAT exposed (22%) or VAT with the margin, if you are a private person you do not change anything, if you are a company: in In the first case, you will recover the VAT, in the second, no. When you put the works in the cart you will be separated from the vat exposed.
If you DON'T LIVE IN EU and you want an EXTRA EU shipping
Many works (not all) have an exposed VAT of 22% included in the price, this vat will be spun off! Obviously you will pay the VAT to your destination country, if due.
