Wang Sishun (b. 1979, Hubei, China) lives and works in Beijing, China. Wang’s Apocalypse series combines geology and anthropology to explore human identity, as well as the deep spiritual and personal meanings therein. The artist’s proposal turns a found stone in the form of a slightly decrepit, warped city hero.
