Parker: Column to Support the Sky


Column to Support the Sky (擎天柱), found objects glued to printed canvas, 31.5" x 23.6" [80 x 60 cm], 2012

One of 4 works made for the 2012 artist residency in Zhang Jia Jie, China. I found objects locally and glued them to the surface of a tourism photo of Zhang Jia Jie, found online and printed to canvas. The work is an effort to complicate impressions of the place beyond its "flat" status as tourist destination. Classical Chinese title lent by Chinese artist Liu Jian. Click for detail image.
