Giant Sea Creature Sculpture by Artist

Giant Sea Creature Sculpture by Artist 
Suspended from a 22-meter-tall ceiling is Wu Zei, a massive sculpture by the artist Huang Yong Ping. It depicts a creature that’s a cross between an octopus and a cuttlefish, who appears simultaneously menacing and sympathetic. The mutated being invades the space it inhabits, wrapping its giant tentacles around poles and beams. At the same time, it conveys a feeling of despair—with trash and small animals stuck to its limbs—as the artist reflects on the maritime catastrophes caused by man.

Wu Zei is on display from now until the middle of July 2016. It is joined by 14 other contemporary Chinese creatives and collectives from around the country.
