Monograph of Cai Zhisong, featuring sculptures from his Motherland series which has been showcased in various venues in Shanghai and Beijing. Cai Zhisong has been awarded the Taylor Prize at the 2002 Paris Autumn Salon. Jade Franklin wrote, 'In a time of great social flux, where decades of social upheaval have contributed to a frequently contradictory culture, Cai Zhisong's sculpture looks back to the stability of the past. His is not a banal reiteration of Chinese history however, but a reaffirmation of the past and its relevance to contemporary times.' The present monograph includes artist statement, artist biography and interview by Wu Hong (in Chinese only).
