Emergency Escape: Chen Wenling, Golden Bull, Madoff

Chen Wenling’s solo exhibition “Emergency Escape” at Joy Art Gallery in 798 is quite different from the artist’s earlier works. In this large installation, a golden bull (the symbol for Wall Street) is ramming its head into a horned Madoff.

Chen Wenling has moved on from his “God of Materialism” series which was shown last year at the Asia Art Center. In my opinion, the quest for the dollar and the subsequent materialism of the Chinese is best represented in these large obese piggies.
