“Old Person’s Home” – Sun Yuan & Peng Yu

Sun Yuan and Peng Yu are two young Chinese artists working colaborativly in Beijing. They are known for their controversial works which make use of odd materials like human fat tissue, live animals and even baby cadavers. Their artwork deals with issues of life, death and the human condition in surreal, and sometimes confrontational, ways. ‘Old Persons Home’ features 13 life-like sculptures sitting in 13 electric wheelchairs.  The 13 sculptures have been made to look eerily like elderly versions of today’s world leaders. The characters all roll around in their wheels chairs, crashing into each other randomly.
