‘For the Ages’

AIPAD2015-LincolnAIPAD2015-Lincoln2Chinese artist Zhang Wei’s “artificial theater” hero portrait of the 16th President of the United States is being scooped-up at AIPAD.

Ironically, today’s Lincoln worshipers are acting more like Confederates — pushing rebellions and slavery in various parts of the world. In the “Hero” series write-up, Zhang Wei suggests that the “recessive violence” and “loss of reason” of hero worshipers has “destroyed the consciousness of independence and freedom of individuals, and makes human civilization go back to slavery, only with transformation of face.”
