Chen Wenling, What You See May Not Be Real, 2009, fiberglass and paint. Installation in Beijing Art Gallery in 2009
The “farting bull” sculpture by Chinese artist Chen Wenling is pretty straightforward. It depicts an explosive fart by the golden bull of Wall Street pinning a demon-horned Bernie Madoff to a wall. One writer described the sculpture as weird, wild, and wicked. Happy Sunday-funday!
