Chinese Garden

Beaufort Location: Lock complex ‘De Ganzenpoot’, Nieuwpoort

Sui Jianguo

°1956, Qingdao, China

For his sculptures Sui Jianguo often uses hard materials and confronting techniques, such as isolation or sealing, to reflect existential fears and internal conflicts. Characteristic for his work is a humanist angle in combination with a subtle sense of humour. In Chinese Garden the artist places polyester sculptures, painted over with gold paint, on each pontoon in the Ganzenpoot. The sculptures are copies of existing statues in Chinese cities. The work refers to the imperial garden in the Forbidden City.
