Guan Xiao
Sunset, 2012

  • LED light box, artificial flower, colored metal, rims, resin
  • Lightbox: 308 x 158 x 10cm, small sculpture: 50 x 45 x 40 cm, large sculpture: 80 x 55 x 55 cm
  • Acquired in 2015

The installation entitled Sunset consists of a light box, animated by the sky colors associated with a sunset, plus two humorous sculptures made of polyurethane-clad wood that appear to be intrinsic to it, tire rims with Google lettering and artificial floral decorations. For Guan Xiao, the surfaces of the light boxes (or monitors) are the preeminent interfaces for the meeting of material and non-material, online and offline worlds. The artist presents us with an arrangement of light that appeals to our senses, one that touches on the worlds of romantic feelings, that also causes past and future to come together, metaphorically.
