Surreal Human Sculptures with Giant Boulder Heads


Teenager Teenager is a unique, hyper-realistic installation by collaborative Chinese artists Sun Yuan and Peng Yu. The installation features human bodies dressed in fancy suits and evening gowns while lounging on leather sofas and chairs, but with giant boulders for heads. The strange situation evokes a sense of bewilderment in viewers, who are faced with deciphering a message concealed within the unusual arrangement.

The project is made up of two different parts, first, the set of sculptures, and second, a performance piece that changes with every installation. Whether children kick a soccer ball around the sculptures or a mysterious cardboard box sits within the room, the only connection that the performances have with the sculptures is that they exist within the same world. According to Galerie Perrotin, “Their works are so many challenges to value systems, socially conditioned prejudices, and the ambiguous relations between East and West.”

The piece is part of an exhibition, entitled Dear, currently on display at Galerie Perrotin through November 9, 2013.
