Yangjiang Group

One Day in Grizedale is Worth Two Thousand Years in Birmingham is a photographic work created by the prominent Chinese collective Yangjiang Group during their exhibition After Dinner Shu Fa at Cricket Pavilion at Eastside projects in 2012.

This photogrpahic work (90 x 105cm) forms the companion piece One Day in Birmingham is Worth Two Thousand Years in Grizedale.

The Yangjiang Group conistently work to subvert the ancient tradition of Chinese calligraphy in a range of contrary media from fireworks to ducks. For the show at Eastside Projects, a dinner was organised in which the left overs of a chinese takeaway meal were used to make the calligraphic message and then photographed to create a lasting tableau of junk food calligraphy.

The meal was held in a structure designed by the artists as a prototype for Coniston Cricket Pavilion, later used at the Frieze Art Fair at the Colosseum of the Consumed.

The work is supplied framed or unframed with a certificate of authentification signed by the artists.
