Lot 68: Evolution-Tang Dynasty Painted Figure Court lady, Fang Ngil Ceremonial Mask

Info

Celebrated multi-media artist Xu Zhen has repeatedly challenged the art world with works that showcase his irreverence and dark humour. In this work, part of his Evolution series, Xu fuses a Tang dynasty court lady figurine with a West African Fang Ngil ceremonial mask, teasing out questions about the evolution of rituals and cultural differences within globalised communities. Xu playfully twists how the ways in which cultural symbols-including their use and function-are perceived and exchanged.
