Design Museum: Contemporary art by Mu Boyan’s
Mu Boyan was born in 1976 in China. Mu graduated from the Sculpture Department of China Central Academy of Fine Arts. Mu Boyan displayed his series work, “Bath Center” in the public bath house of the Central Academy of Fine Arts. It is said, that group of sculpture was accepted to make for a bath center a job for living. After that, Mu Boyan has concentrated continuously on portraying the images of a fat person.
Today, the gap between rich and poor enlarges day by day, the fatty no longer has the symbolic significance as “laughing than growing fat,” but is often explained visually as “occupying social resources excessively.” And trought this sculptures the artist want to pass this message so we can have another way of looking at the “fatties”.
