Free-standing sculpture

ZD_0350

This hand sculpture is not unlike the rest as it mirrors materialistic masses sans individual identity. Here the hand holds simply a potato, a substance implying hunger, or worse gluttony. ZHANG has stated that the black, gold and silver color scheme of the exhibit is purely for aesthetic purposes, and one cannot deny that it is pleasing. Still, the strong glowing gold of the potato does not go unnoticed. This food substance is our gold; the heart of materialism in society. Though seemingly the most simple of the passive hand sculptures, Potato is powerful in its deeper meaning; speaking to our inherent material nature.
