Jiao Xingtao
Wrapped Mao

About

A fiberglass sculpture, Wrapped Mao, depicts the bust of Mao, wrapped in brown paper by contemporary artist Jiao Xingtao. Signed, in gold marker, lower left back in Chinese with the edition beneath signature, "3/8." Born in Chengdu, Sichuan Province, Jiao Xingtao takes familiar everyday items such as discarded packing boxes, Wrigley’s chewing gum wrappers, or crumpled bags from designer stores, and using fibre glass transforms them into hyper-realistic aesthetic objects. His theme is consumerism, but his focus is on its discards, the packages that lure the buyer with bright promises, only to be torn open and tossed aside. Green Diary (2007) is a screwed-up Wrigley’s gum wrapper; Happily Forgotten (2007) is a crushed Crest toothpaste box. Jiao Xingtao reproduces the packages’ rips and crumples as meticulously as if he were creating grand monuments. His works are monuments to waste, obsolescence and triviality-and the aesthetic charms of the most mundane consumables.
