Event Description:

Venice, CA -- L.A. Louver is pleased to present a two-person exhibition with British artist Richard Deacon and Chinese artist Sui Jianguo. The installation includes new and recent works in clay, wood and stainless steel by Deacon, and over 40 bronze and galvanized photosensitive resin sculptures by Sui. This is the artists’ first collaborative presentation in the United States.Sui Jianguo and Richard Deacon first met in 1999 when Deacon proposed a sculpture for a public site in China. Sui sat on the selection committee. From this time onwards, Sui and Deacon have maintained a friendship as well as lively ongoing dialogue about issues relating to sculpture. Sui recalls: “I remember the first time [Deacon] visited me at the Central Academy of Fine Arts, he immediately photographed the classroom’s decrepit ceiling that with age had paint peeling off of it and curling onto itself. The following year, he made a series of works using laminated wood curling into itself. This is something that left a deep impression on me.”
