about this work
Wang Du’s practice involves collecting media images and appropriating them into expansive sculptures. His curiosity about the media and what he terms the ‘international landscape’ – advertising hoardings, newstands overflowing with newspapers, bright multicoloured magazines and an endless flood of television – has become the main inspiration for his work. These sculptures are often overwhelming due to their immense stature and their critique on the power of mass media incontemporary society.
